Goose Island was opened in Chicago in 1988 by John Hall. They are one of our first craft beers, and they were one of the first breweries to have a barrel aging program. They currently have a 10 BBL and a 15 BBL brewhouse, brewing over 50 different beers annually. Quite simply, they are amazing!
We will be drinking...
Honkers Ale English style bitter
312 Urban wheat ale
Matilda Belgian style pale ale

Bourbon county barley wine Never had this, and I'm so excited! Aged in the third-use barrels that were once home to Kentucky bourbon and then the renowned Bourbon County Stout, this traditional English-style barleywine possesses the subtlety of flavor that only comes from a barrel that’s gone through many seasons of ritual care. The intricacies of the previous barrel denizens – oak, charcoal, hints of tobacco and vanilla, and that signature bourbon heat – are all present in this beer.
DNA Pizza will be giving us our BABS discount of $1 off drafts and $3 off flights, but you have to have a nametag, so see me before you order.
I hope you can make it!
