My first visit to GI was great. The atmosphere is typical of most large brewpubs that I have visited over the years. There is a large bar with plenty of seating and there are plenty of TVs to catch the game on. It can be very noisy, especially on weekends when the place is packed. I went during lunch time on a Saturday and it was a full house. The quality and selection of the beers were great however they are bit on the pricey size per serving. That being said however, if you like GI beers that are distributed, then you will def like the many offerings that are available here. They also have multiple cask offerings if thats your thing. I didnt try the food so I can't really comment on it but other patrons around the bar were eating and appeared to be very tasty grub.

Met some friends for V-Day 2014 here though arrived a little late thanks to chicago's amazing traffic system. The beer was really good Identity crisis was pretty well amazing I enjoyed the fish and chips with the several beers I imbibed over the course of the evening. The waiter's knowledge of the beer was great, it was really nice to have someone who knew what the heck was on the menu instead of "it's a dark beer" or "it's kinda a light beer like you know bud light". The menu itself did a good job of explaining what was going on in many of the brews which they had several made in house exclusively but as for the personal touch the waiter did a pretty good job of offering up his thoughts on the beers. The Identity Crisis was $10 for a small snifter of the stuff probably around 5 oz, really freaking good stuff I bought another egged on by my buddy AJ but still I thought a little steep for a sample size glass. In the end I would definitely go back the place was comfortable and the people were very hospitable to say the least and the beer....well the beer speaks volumes for itself, the other beers were reasonably priced for a Chicago bar. I'd go back that's for sure, someone else needs to drive. TAXI!
