Had high hopes on finding some íspecialí Goose Island beers here. Quite a normal selection, still good beer though. Service little slow, guess everybody was watching the game on TV. OK bar food, and afterall very good atmospere there.

So we came in here on a day where the Cubs were out of town, so I canít really say what it looks like on a game day (but I can damn well guess). I bet its a zoo! Anyway, this is a nice spot for some brewpub beers that are somehow also made by AB... What an odd combo. I wonít hold it against them though. It feels like a nice, solid brewpub. The GI name (and all the "guest" beers from the big GI) just happens to be there too.

Jammed between games of a doubleheader but they still managed to handle the crowd. An man they had a nice selection. Food was decent bar food. Well worth a visit. Pricy.

Came here for GI Stout Fest 2014. Pretty cool place to hang out in. Nice open spaces with everything youíre looking for. Pretty decent selection. They also know how to run an event really well. No complaints here.

Stoutfest 2014 was held here. Pretty friendly place. Plenty of space. Will need to return to check it out in a normal situation.

Great spot outside of Wrigley and great environment here, especially before a game. Selection not as great as Clybourn location, but pretty good still, you wonít be disappointed.

Visited 7/25/2010 with masterski.

Masterski took me on a bit of a walking bar crawl the first night I was in Chicago. Stopped here right after having some beer and fries at Sheffieldís. This GI location seems like more of a sports bar with a couple of house taps just to remind themselves that they are in fact running a brewpub. Itís understandable of course given the proximity to Wrigley Field.

Lots of places to sit and lots of employees to flag down for a beer but the impression that I got was that unless you are loud and drunk youíll get passed up. Pretty loud over all but thatís alright.

The beers available were the regulars (312, Honkers, IPA, Kolsch, etc) plus one or two rotating taps it seems. The IPA is quite nice and the 312 would be good if I liked American Wheat (Garbage) Ales.

Didnt eat because we were only stopping in for a quick beer before going to the next place. Would stop in if I was in town for a Cubs game.

Before a cubs game on a recent visit. Was just about what I expected. Beers were decent, as was the service. No unusual Goose Island styles. Seemed like one of the nicer places around Wrigley Field. Worth a visit.

Stopped in on a Saturday night a few weeks after regular season had ended since we knew the Cubs would not be playing (heh). Was a bit empty- surprisingly low for that time of night. The barmaid was quite nice and friendly. Beers were good with some nice, non-distrubuted to my area, beers pouring. Canít say I was blown away by any of it but it was a nice space and if you are a GI fan then it wwould be a real enjoyable place to visit. I would ocme back if in the area again but only if I had the time and there werenít other places I wanted to go.
