Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub Closing For Rennovations

04 January 2017

imageFrom the Chicago Tribune:

So with the help of its deep-pocketed parent company, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Chicago's longest-operating brewery will close its doors after service Sunday for a five-month makeover that will reinvent the Goose Island brewpub for a 21st-century audience.

The to-do list for Goose Island's pub at 1800 N. Clybourn Ave. includes removing the top half of that dark wood bar to open and lighten the space. The loft adjacent to the bar, which currently has seating, will be ripped out so that new brewing tanks can be installed in the cellar below (also currently seating). 

All brewing and kitchen equipment will be replaced. Walls will come down to create an open kitchen in view of the dining room. The food menu, an off-and-on struggle, will get a remake with input from chef Paul Virant (of Vie in Western Springs and Vistro in Hinsdale), who is consulting on the project.
