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. (743 characters)

The atmosphere is so all American and hip. The food was also excellent! (71 characters)

Pro: I was pleasantly surprised to see the very large number of beers on tap that were brewed on-premise. I was able to drink nothing but beers I hadn't even known existed prior to my visit. All beers I tasted were very good. I had soup and a sandwich--the soup was excellent and the sandwich was good.

Con: they really needed more than one bartender when I was there at an off-peak time; he was overworked. (408 characters)

Came here while on a conference, and Blackhawks were in Stanley Cup Finals.

Very relaxed vibe. Two bars are set up and each with 20+ taps. I went with a few on premises beers. They had 50% off appetizers and $4 pours of 6% or less beers. Awesome!

Service was a little slow, for no reason I could see. Food options looked good but I enjoyed the deal on apps.

I'd come back to this nostalgic place of a brewery that made it. And they still make great beer. (467 characters)
