Brewery Yard Release Party

Date September 12
Time 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Place Goose Island Tap Room 1800 W Fulton Chicago, IL 60612

Goose Island Beer Company has teamed up with brewing historian Ron Pattinson to create Brewery Yard, a Stock Pale Ale. To our knowledge, this is the first brewing of true Stock Pale Ale in 50 years, a faithful recreation of a 19th Century Burton recipe using floor malted English pale malt, whole cone English and U.S. hops, and aged for 11 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces.

You are invited to enjoy an exclusive tasting of the beer and hear from Ron and Goose Island’s Brewing Innovation Manager Mike Siegel on the idea behind the collaboration, the brewing process and nearly two and a half year period between inspiration and bottle, and the history of this style of brewing English Pale Ale.  

Bottles will be available for purchase exclusively at the Tap Room until supplies last.
