I am going to be in Chicago tomorrow night. I have had a few excellent beers from Goose Island so was thinking of having dinner at their brewery. Is there a better brewery I should visit?

How about beers unique to the midwest, what should I pick up to take home and where should I shop for a unique selection? I am flying into MDW and staying downtown.

I appreciate any local help to make the most of my 23 hours in Chicago.

Revolution and Half Acre. I'll give you my address so feel free to ship me some Akari Shogun. If you have the time and chance, head south a bit and hit up 3 Floyd's

I wish I had thought ahead and I could have packed up some rare San Diego Beers and brought out care packages for some Midwest HBTers. Unfortunately my boss waited until the last moment for this trip.

Goose Island got me into craft brew, so they will always have a soft spot in my heart. But yeah, as others have said above, Revolution is where I'd go.

I really like Goose Island Clybourn, and go there more often than anywhere else in the city (the 20% AHA discount on food and drink helps). You wouldn't go wrong with the other places people are suggesting though.
