Every year I try to go on a "Mancation" and this past year(2009) was no exception.Went to Chicago just to sample the locale Brew and was elated to get to be on the tour for Goose Island. Showed up by taxi and was not impressed so much as the strip mall around the brewpub but going thru the doors, could smell the excitment in the air. Our tourguide was very cool and explained all the makings of a Goose beer. After learning some of the finer points of brewing the Goose, we retired to a large sampling room were half pints were poured and I believe 8 were poured. then to the bar area with our new G.I. glass to taste some of the rare from Matilda to Red Felt, Sofie, and a great pulled pork sandwich. Was a bit upset at pricing of the bottles for sale. But trying to get 312 Urban Wheat in my area of PA and have found an outlet and hopefully soon, I now at least can get the Honkers Ale A wonderful E.S.B. in my area.Overall worth the trip from Pittsburgh!

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.
