We were able to walk right in, sit down at the bar on a Friday night at 8:00. I couldn’t believe it. The place was really clean and had a very upscale feel. Our Server was amazing. Quick to bring the beer list and menus then get our first drink order in. Had a cask conditioned Goose Feathers which was really nice. Food order came out in a timely manner…all hot food was still hot. Our second round of drinks was next with recommendations from the server which paired nicely with our meals. Overall a great experience with good food and drink. Polite and quick service was really appreciated. I would definitely go back and recommend to others.

Goose Island Clybourn is about what you would expect from a taproom: Lots of brick and wood with a funky industrial background. Lots of noise and really busy on the weekend evening we visited.
Great atmosphere and even better service. That was really the highlight for me, the very helpful and friendly barkeeps. They got us flights quickly, kept refilling my water and talked about some of the beers.
The beer itself ranged from a couple that seemed a bit off-style to me and not very good to excellent. We did not try the food so I cannot comment on that. Overall, a fun pub and I would go back.

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.
