I hit the Goose on a weekend when the Cubs weren't playing next door at Wrigley, which would obviously impact the establishment or patrons encountered; but frankly I enjoyed it being a little quieter and quite a bit less Frat-tastic than the Cubs fans that can get a little too saucy & mouthy on game day.

Cool bar set up, with a pretty long wood bar, plenty of taps, and an open warehouse sort'v vibe with separate rooms for different parties & whatnot. On to the beer...

Enjoyed a Chicago Star, a rather hoppy amber sort of ale that I enjoyed: reminded me a bit of a lighter bodied Stone Pale Ale but not bad at all and around $5or$6.

The Pere Jacque was next at around $7or$8, and was a fine Belgian-style ale, sort of an abbey pale versus a triple but the booze came through a little bit, but tasty nonetheless.

Last was the maple bacon stout, which I opted for instead of the Bourbon Barrel Stout($9) on tap or the Night Stalker Imp Stout available in bottles ($20), as I'd had the previous & was purchasing bottles of the latter for the cellar at home. Excellent stout with mild bacon undertones, slight molasses and coffee ground notes, and a medium body accompanied by a light chocolate colored head. All in all FRESH suds...

Served by Patti and Monica, two cute 20somethings that both know their beer well enough to steer you in the right direction; seek them out! I didn't feel like being a jerk and really quizzing them, but they made proper pours in the appropriate glassware without attitude.

All in all, aside from a slight Gordon Biersch'esque corporate vibe due to Goose Island's continued growth and success, I'd certainly recommend this place for a stop. Next time in town I'll have to hit the Clybourn location!
