Came here with 5 other friends from St. Louis, MO for the Brewery Tour! I've been to the Goose Island location in Wrigleyville, so I was very interested in checking this one out! Here it goes!
While walking from Lincoln Park, this place was fairly close walking distance from anywhere! Walking in, we received our wristbands, went to the bar, and ordered drinks all around. Everyone purchased different brews so we could all try new ones. I enjoyed Goose Feathers and the FairytAle (Pumpkin) while others went for similar brews that were lighter in style. The brewpub was PACKED this day (Saturday) and had a fun vibe to it. But this wasn't why we were here! The tour actually started in the brew kettle room (visible from all around the place) and then ended in their banquet room right next to the side door to the place. The tour was about average but the tasting was fantastic enjoying 6 beers altogether! I suggest coming here for this!
Everything served in Pint glasses, wish they could mix it up with each style... You could also order an 8oz glass of each brew.
Service was great but a bit slow... We had troubles with this at the other location. Not a problem but VERY noticeable. Need to improve here.
Can't beat the selection! I took home a Growler of their Dunkel Weizenbock and a 650mL of the Lolita. Both were great and definitely couldn't have been purchased anywhere else (Clybourn Released only!).
For only $10 to take a tour, I suggest this and enjoying as many new and different brews as you can here! Great job Goose Island. Keep up the good work.
