I was at the Clybourn Brewhouse, the place is more restaurant than brewhouse. It reminds me of a higher-end place. The service and beer are good.

I came to Goose Fulton lured by an instagram post showing a bottle menu of Bourbon County goodies and rarities. Alas, it was all gone when I visited (please update the printed menu!)

Other than that, this is a clean, modern taproom. Friendly servers, only a few folks on a Saturday early afternoon after opening time... around 20 beers on tap divided by styles. Nothing exciting, sadly.

The only barrel-aged stuff on tap: Brasserie Blanc and Hombre Secreto.

I will likely not return, unless Bourbon County is available.

Did the brewery tour. Awesome tour guide, I think his name was Johnny. Coolest part was the Barrel house. The tap room was solid, some quality beers on tap. Wish there was more seating but overall a good experience.
