Even though Anheuser-Busch purchased Chicago’s hometown brewer in 2011, some locals still claim the brewpub as their own. This large, well-lit bar has 20 beers on tap daily, so you can try old favorites, such as the popular Honker’s Ale, or something more obscure, like the Identity Crisis barrel-aged porter. The bar draws in a steady stream of bubbly locals and tourists, and brewery tours fill quickly. Goose Island also has a bar in Wrigleyville, at 3535 N. Clark St. ([tel] 773/832-9040).
