Bucking Fastard left this review about Goose Island

A modern brew pub with a rank of large high tables running most of the length of the righthand wall,which is fully exposed brick ,while the industrial ducting in the ceiling giving it a hip feel.The bar is to the left,while a small raised area at the rear has more traditional tables and chairs while a glass panel behind which sits the brew kit.A trip to the downstairs loo (worth inspecting) will show more brewing kit at this lower level.Muzak wasn't too loud,tables will be reserved but sensibly indicating the time when the table is booked.The food menu is mainly pizze and subs,there is also quite a long bottled list.
The bar has a 12 tap gantry with 10 from Goose Island,many at high ABV while two guest kegs were also carried.There are 4 handpumps offering their own Harvest MILD DH (doubled),a decent Buxton Downfall Ekuanot £5.25 with a further pump unclipped.
If you want to sample Goose Island keg beers with recipes from the US ,then this place will suit.I was expecting more options in real ale,so in future I may just pop in the see what's on,but would not aim for this pub as a destination for real ale.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Goose Island

Decent brew-pub, with a rectangular bar at the front and a small slightly raised seating / dining area at the back with the brew-plant behind a glass screen at the rear. Semi-modern furniture and decor (of the BrewDog variety) throughout. It looked like there were eight craft beers brewed on site, plus the regular and Midway IPAs, available from the keg taps, and two Siren guest ales - Liquid Mistress and Suspended in Olicana (£5.20) - being dispensed from the pair of handpumps at each end of the counter.

Smartly done up inside and out in 2018, a small fortune must have been lavished here. The interior decor is classic upmarket hipster post-industrial with stripped boards, brick walls crudely painted off-white with black stars and a load of old posters collaged. Of genuine interest is the rather fetching long curved bar featuring black and white lined tiling, as well as the brew kit at the rear. 'Merch' available but at 25 sheets for a tee and 40 for a hoodie you'd have to be a proper Shoreditch Trustafarian. Plenty of keg at the usual silly keg prices, especially so here given they brew a load of them a few feet away. However there are four cask taps, doubled up on my visit with Wild Beer Millionaire and Yeastie Boys Captain Planet which weighed in at a perhaps surprisingly OK £2.50 a half. It was excellently kept, NBSS 4. Fairly pleasant background music played on my stay. It's alright here, better than I was expecting, and certainly the ale quality helped.
