We left the hotel late this morning for Wrigleyville and Goose Island was our destination. The cab pulled up and dropped us off in the middle of some light rainfall. I had planned on pre-gaming here before the Cubs vs. Reds game.
We entered at a good time, before it got too crowded and made our way towards the back bar. This location of Good Island reminded me of many classic brewpubs and similar to Boston Beer Works. The atmosphere is wide open and spacious with plenty of seating, quality craft beer and good bar food.
There was an extensive beer list that included all of the essential information like pricing, bottle/draft, glass volume and glass shape. Some of the drafts available during my visit included 312 Wheat, Green Line, Cubby Blue, Matilda, Wrigleyville White, Daybreak IPA, SPF Kolsch and Dublin Stout. I had a couple of the Dublin Stouts that were really smooth and true to the style. I also had to try to the Matilda on tap as this is rare to find on draft around Boston.
I found this to be a perfect place to have some craft beers before the game with a convenient proximity to Wrigley Field.
