Pretty comparable to the Clybourn location, but they tend to miss out on the rare batch of higher gravity stuff that sometimes shows up at the Clybourn location. Otherwise the two are nearly identical, although itís harder to find parking for this one.

Absolutely huge place. Food was decent, tap selection was pretty good, mostly their standard stuff, but a few interesting things. Service was pretty average.

This is my first visit to Goose Island at Wrigleyville, thanks to the 3rd Annual Festival of Wood/Barrel-aged beers. I enjoyed the beer ambiance and the ability to simply sit down at a table and sample beers from the festival as well as Goose Island and eat in relative peace. The service was slow and some of the beers on the menu ran out, but the food selection was good and my fish & chips was excellent. I would definitely come back again for beer and food.

Nice place. Attended the Wood and Barrel Aged Beer Festival there. The decor was beer. Great. Food was excellent and my waitress was both hot and personable. Will go back again to sample more of their beer and food.

My first visit here was to enjoy the Third Annual Festival of Barrel Aged Beers. For this occasion, Goose Island was a perfect venue... easily accessible by train with expansive areas to hold a large crowd and a boatload of brewers. Huge bars, warm ambiance, decent service and a lengthy menu of house brews made it a highly pleasurable experience. (Many thanks and congratulations to those who made the event work.)
There seems to be an ongoing battle here between the Wrigleyville and Clybourn
locations. My vote is for Clybourn but I would definitely revisit this location as well. Visit them both and simply enjoy the beer!

Much better than the Clybourn location. The bar is infinitely nicer, less tourists and families, and in a better location. Not bad for a more generic type brewpub.

I donít really like this location. Itís just a Wrigleyvill bar that serves exclusively Goose Island stuff. Which I guess could mean that itís a good place. Best in Wrigleyville, but thatís not saying a whole lot...

Well I concer with what Cornfield says. I prefer Clybourn as well...but I am a Cubs fan I do like to stop by here for a brew prior to the game (not so much after). I like the Cubs stuff around the walls and the staff is normally pretty good. For the northside, it a better than average place to visit.

This isnít a bad place, but the Clybourn location is superior. Why? Because this one is filled up with jocks and yuppies. Same okay food. The beer selection, as stated elsewhere, is great, and GI should be bottling more of their "experimental" stuff. And Wrigleyville should have valet parking.

I prefer Clyborn by far. The beers here are equally good but the atmosphere much less intimate and you run the risk of running into vast and annoying throngs of Cubs fans, who I think we can all agree are the worst fans in professional sports.
