I donít get here as much as I should. Itís sort of the gold standard in Chicago brewpubs. Always a broad spectrum selection thatís in great shape. Willing to brew unusual beers to balance the standards...good. Food is a cut above and service is always courteous and prompt.

i like this place. a nice rotation of beers, the staff is generally knowledgeable about the beers as well. about 1/2 the way through my MBA. the most recent trip was the best in terms of the selection of the beers i had. the beer nachos are enormous! the service was a little weak the most recent visit, but if itís better next time iíll rerate.... it was worse, the guy was new and was wrong about a bunch of things. the rotating cask is awesome though, i always have a great time at GI clybourn.
rerate: theyíve shrunk their menu to 1 page, the prices have skyrocketed. growlers cost insane. booo.
i had a fine time here. i enjoyed a few fine brews and had a chipotle burger or something of that sort. i was in the eating part, not the bar, but i saw the bar on the way to the pisser and it looked cool.
Stopped in over the weekend. Of course after a quick stop into Samís. Parking was a breeze. Great draft selection. Apparenty ever changing. Had a few samplers, well, eight all together. But hey, I wasnít driving! Beers were great. Food was descent. Service was kinda slow on a Friday afternoon, but still not bad! Next time Iím in the area, Iíll make it a point to go again, with possibly all different beers!
...have been here many times for Food and drink. The food is great... probably canít go wrong with anything. They have a nice tap selection with all the old standbys and a few seasonals/pub only brews. The service has always been friendly and knowledgeable. This is a must see, especially since it is across the street (literally) from SAMS wine and spirits.
Nice place, got a little busy and hard to get service after 6pm on a Friday night, but to be expected (except for the service part). Great parking. Roughly ten GI beers on tap, which was nice to see. Good overall.
I love this place. Best place I have been to yet. Sure it doesnít have anything but its own brews. Let me say though it makes damn good brews. The prices are some of the best out there. The food is fantastic, and they always have deals on food. If I lived in Chicago I would be here at least once a week. The ambiance is great. In downtown and great for sports. Just a great place.
service was decent, a pretty classy lookin place, great food, the overall cost of the outing was pricey, but the beer was great.

Nice location, close ti Samís Wine and Liquor litteraly next door. Service was OK if a bit unattentive and rushed. After shopping at Samís, came back for Happy Hour, with better service, and had the Buffalo Breasts, and chicken liver patť, at half price, and 3$ pint...mmmm. Good menu. (Update: happy hour is no longer offered, but the beers still rock)
