Goose Island has been a go-to business lunch spot for the last few years. Their food is fine (good veggie burger), there is plenty of space, and they used to serve a variety of cocktails and beer. A few months ago, their license changed and they are only allowed to serve their own beer now. For me, this was a... More

Good atmosphere. Great beer. Enjoyed several appetizers and then vegetarian chili. Another friend had fish tacos and another had the cuban sandwich and all were good. Would definitely good back.

As the title says they have all the beers Goose Island produce. Went for a number of the taster glasses. Service was great, place just didn't feel like a brewery which is a small gripe, the beer should be front and centre not hidden away

Vast selection of tasty beers. We sampled a good selection all of which were chuggable and some of which you'd want as house beer. We tried a salad and a few other bits and pieces all of which complemented the ale famously. Couple of engaging barmen kept us well served and amused throughout. Well played.

We came in for a couple of beers. We are familiar with Goose and their beers and we wanted to try some that aren't available in stores. Mission accomplished! We didn't eat but the food we saw looked great!

This was a fun activity for a Saturday afternoon. We spent an hour touring the facility, tasting a variety of ales and beers, and learned a lot about the brewing process and the differences in beers.

The beer is so-so and the food is nothing special. The service on the other hand was excellent. We ordered fish tacos. You get plenty but be sure to order extra sauce because they are dry. The pork bellies were not very good but the hamburgers and onion rings were good.
