I have habitually visited the original Goose Island at Clybourn for years. I thought it was time (a few months back) to check out one of their other venues, choosing Goose Island at Fulton Street. Upon arrival, I was greeted with a menu that immediately had me salivating. Goose Island consistently offers too many lip-smacking choices.
GET SIDETRACKED AT NEARBY UPTON'S BREAKROOM
Before hitting the suds, I thought it best to get a full meal in my belly. I opted to go healthy at Upton's Breakroom, which is less than a mile away. I was elated with my choice, ordering the palatable Togarashi Bowl. The dish consisted of tofu, kale, carrots, shredded seaweed, and pickled radish served over purple rice. I left satiated with plenty of room for Goose Island bevvies. Trust me when I say carnivores will enjoy the vegan food at Upton's. The cafe is small; however, they have a cute patio to look forward to. I look forward to making my way through the entire menu. https://bit.ly/2WWuhT7
READY FOR SOME GOOSE ISLAND BREWS
I decided to go small so that I could imbibe on four must-have beers. I started with a P.YAAS.L. (Pumpkin Coffee Stout) and La Chatita (Horchata Ale). The strongest flavor for the pumpkin stout was coffee with a hint of chocolate, and the horchata was cinnamony deliciousness.
I finished strong with a Brasserie Noir (barrel-aged imperial stout aged in wet cabernet barrels) and 2017 Bourbon County Stout. These two stouts are dark, chocolatey, and flavorful just as they should be.
I'm so glad I decided to visit this off the beaten path location. Fulton Street will give you friendly vibes and phenomenal craft beer in a unique, warehouse-style setting.
