If you are a craft beer lover, you must visit this place. Fresh and well-done craft beer, including the traditional Goose Island labels and some exclusive from the house. Nice food as well.

This place is huge, one could get lost and the choice of draft beer is extensive, It would take days to sample all but I managed two. Just came in to see and taste some beer. They serve pub style food.

The previous restaurant at this location was a regular meeting spot with friends before heading over to the ACC for a game. We all agreed that this new Goose Island Brewhouse is a great improvement. We all tried different beers and not a single complaint....More

Hey Rob! Thanks for stopping by and for the great review. Our beer list is always changing so we hope to see you again soon! We just tapped a Pilsner at the Retail Shop so that will be coming down the pipeline shortly.

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
