This was my first trip to a good beer establishment outside of Pittsburgh (my home) and Baltimore (where I went to school). I was more than pleased with the atmosphere. Every song played was something I liked (literally every song for a good three hours), but the best part was I didn't have to scream to talk. Big bar and lots of shit on the walls for a good appearance. I was surprised to see that there wasn't a big turnout for a Saturday night. While I enjoy not needing 10 minutes to move 10 feet, it was a bit disheartening that such a good bar would not have tons of business.

I had a good ongoing conversation with the bartender. Though he wasn't completely knowledgable about the brews, he went out of his way to figure out answers to any questions I had. He also have me a few 1-2 oz. samples on the house when I expressed interest in a brew.

The selection was awesome. It was all Goose Island brews except for Lagunitas Gnarlye Wine. There were three beers on cask. I sampled two of them and it was clear that the casks were well maintained. Goose Island makes a good mix of beers and there was something for just about everyone, including a good mix of Belgians.

This is one hell of a place. I just wish it was closer to the 'burgh.
