I came to this Brewpub during a Cubs vs. Yankees game and it was a wild time! While I am a huge fan of Goose Island's brews, this was an easy decision in to where to go in Chicago first.

Awesome people, but not my favorite. I'm a Cardinals fan, thru and thru but this didn't keep us from having a good time. The place had the game going on all televisions, almost like a sports bar in here. One of their walls is covered with ivy like Wrigley Field has in the outfield. Very shiny and the usual bar qualities everywhere (full bar, bar backs, servers, etc.). Many brewpubs don't have these attributes.

The quality wasn't the best. The glassware looked as if it was taken from a cooler (frosted glasses) but I asked and they weren't, just clouded from being warm. This definitely changed the beer temperatures but not the experience. Everything else was very nice. The Beer Lists were up to par and were very creative.

Service was not what we expected at all. The bartenders seemed like they HAD to give us our drinks. Not very informative or wanting to educate on what we were about to drink. Almost anytime I asked about the beer, the bartenders seemed "bothered" or weren't in the mood to talk at all. Such a shame with all this good beer!

The selection made up for everything else! They had 8 beers on-tap of their own beers in front of us (plus random taps all across the bar with more Goose Island) and then another 4+ Guest Taps with great selections! They also had some rare Sours (that I wish I tried) that were sold in 650mL bottles but were a bit pricey ($25). Will be back to try these!

The food was also wonderful! Enjoyed both the buffalo wings and Stilton Burger with their home-made chips. Awesome pub food!

We left with a $60 tab (which was quite high I thought). I was picturing more specials since they are owned by AB Inbev now. Oh well, Great time! Will look forward to going to the Goose Island Claybourn BrewPub next time.
