Goose Island Meet The Brewer and Tap Takeover

Opening in 1988 Goose Island was one of a handful of brewpubs across The Midwest getting in on the craft beer scene in it's infancy.

 

This event officially starts at 6 PM and is expected to be crowded so our friends at The Willows have invited us an hour early For a private Q and A with the brewer and a chance to taste the beers before anyone else!

Featured beers:

Bourbon County Coffee Stout

Big John

The Illinois

Matilda Lambicus

Matilda

Sofie

Pepe Nero

312 Urban Wheat

Honkers Ale

India Pale Ale

Harvest Ale

Bourbon County Cherry Rye

Juliet 2010

King Henry English Barley Wine

Madame Rose 2012

There will also be some Rare Bourbon County Stout for sampling

 

To honor Goose Island The Willows will be serving Chicago Style hot dogs

 

Get there early to meet the brewer and grab a space before the crowds show up!

 

We will be getting $1 off draft beers while we are there but you have to have a name tag to get the deal so see me before you order.

I'll be wearing a Club T-shirt, you can get yours here.

 

I hope everyone can make it!

      Yes, these are highly regarded beers. I have had several versions from their Bourbon County Brand, including the three they will serve on Oct 2nd. They are delicious!

    Goose Island is great. If I lived closer to SF I would attend more events. So... I vote for more South Bay tap takeover events!
