I loved the exposed brick in this place. It made me think of my own condo, which has a lot of that. The whole joint feels homey and comfy. I'm not super excited about the neighborhood and all the yuppies that frequent this and nearby places, but whatever.

Food was good, I loved my burger and the fries were delicious. Good selection of Goose Island. They were out of a few styles, but not any that I was really hankering to try. Staff was decent, nothing special. Wasn't crowded at 5pm-ish on a Friday, which is good for me.

Not too expensive for beers. I guess the average was 6 bucks. I'd go again, but I wasn't impressed enough with some of GI's beers to REALLY want to go again. I'd probably take some friends there, but not much else.

Not a bad brewpub, a great space that looks brand new with quite a few taps. The brewery tour on the other hand is very underwhelming. Unless you have very little knowledge of beer skip the tour. It's comprised of standing around and listening to one of the (brewpub)brew masters explain the brewing process.

Highlights included being able to see a few casks aging in the brewing room, having a few samples after the tour and getting a pint glass included in the price of admission. For value this cannot be beat.

The brewpub offers a lot of beer that is created on-site and a new beer is available weekly. The swag selection is very good. Lots of t-shirts, glasses and even a Chicago/Goose Island flag.
