This is where it all started for Goose Island back in 1988, when founder John Hall opened a brewpub and began making beer inspired by the ones he drank while traveling through Europe. While Goose Island has grown considerably over the past three decades, it hasn't outgrown its home on Clybourn Avenue, where guests can still have a pint and enjoy a meal. An extensive makeover in 2017 added additional taps to the brewpub's main bar, filled the space with dark wooden accents and added a stack of barrels to the decor—a reminder that this was the place in which the first keg of Goose Island's famous Bourbon Country Brand Stout was tapped.

Summer farmer's market beers. That's all that really needs to be said. In the summer they've got brewery only beers that change week to week made with whatever's in season at the farmer's market. But really, stop by year round, there's always something different on the beer list and the cheese curds are nice and squeaky.
