Had a great time at the Goose Island tasting room at 1800 W. Fulton. I'm not a huge fan of GI's non-barrel aged offerings, but they had a nice selection of non-distro stuff on tap, including their old oatmeal stout and a nice double IPA brewed with orange juice. The staff is really nice and helpful and the hour-long tour is definitely worth it.

Although I've been to the Fulton brewery a number of times, this was a visit to the public taproom preview yesterday. I'm not sure why there are so many place ratings for a brewery not open to the public until this weekend.

Lots of friendly staff on hand, lots of tour groups, sharp looking modern space, all about the corporate branding. Subway tiled walls, a wheelchair accessible ramp, full view of the bottling line past the bar. A few goose drafts, nothing too wild. A Dunkel with cascara and cacao nibs was on cask. A small nook in the back with assorted swag merchandise.

Overall an ok experience, probably will be a nice spot during off hours minus all the tour groups.

A good brewery that used to be much better. If not for their excellent Bourbon County Brand series, I would give much lower marks. Their base line beers are completely uninspired and their mid tier (Sofie, Pere Jacques, Matilda, etc.) are good but overrated.
