I went to Goose Island Clybourn this past Friday for lunch - certainly not my first time, but first time I'll review.

The atmosphere of this place is good. It's not as warm and eclectic as my favorite places and it's a bit Applebees-ish, but the bar area is pretty nice. They also have a backroom where they hold events - a nice touch.

The quality is great - fresh (or properly aged) beer, correct glassware, proper temperatures. I'm happy.

The service is quite good. Our server knew all of the beer selections (including guest beers) and was able to help in making selections. She could also talk beer with us.

The selection is decent. Overall, it's a good selection - Goose Island has a pretty good arsenal of beers. However, they had a few taps out (brewpub only beers), which upset me a bit. I wanted to try a couple new things, and was only able to try the Sai-Shan-Tea (as far as new Goose Island beers). It was quite good.

My burger was outstanding. Grass-fed with spinach, it was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful. It was one of the best burgers I've ever had.

All in all, this is a good brewpub. I wish they had some more one-off beers (maybe it was an off day), but it is a great place for a meal and a couple beers. It's a bit pricy ($10 BCBS in snifter), but not too bad.

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.
