Goose Island Events and Summer Party Planning

Hi everyone, Happy Friday.    I wanted to let you know about some free events in July that feature some rare Goose Island products.  But first, I want to talk about volunteering for the Summer Party.  There is an organizing meeting on July 11th at Dean’s house.  If you are available to do some of the heavy lifting for the summer party (buying supplies, transporting kegs, renting chairs), we’d appreciate it if you could attend. Email me at so I can get a headcount since Dean will be providing dinner.  If you can’t make the organizing meeting but would like to help and you didn’t sign up for it at the last club meeting, email me at and we can work out if you would like to help before during, and/or after the party.  Finally, make sure you mark your calendars for July 20th for the summer party.  And as I announced at the March meeting, unless you have heard otherwise from me your guests must pay $10 to attend the party in order for us to make up the costs.

Now for the Goose Island announcements:

“On Wed., July 10 from 6 – 9 p.m. at Beer Belly, we’ll be tapping a Bourbon County Stout Single Barrel, Bourbon County Stout Coffee (2012) and Bourbon County Stout Cherry, along with The Illinois, Sofie Paradisi, Matilda, Madame Rose (2010) and Juliet (2012).
