Barrels of Love

Send in your love letters to Goose Island for a chance to win a wedding reception at our Barrel House Event Space

Last year presented many challenges, like having to put celebrations with loved ones, and so many memories on hold.  

As things are opening back up, the romantic in us can’t help but feel hopeful and inspired by the amount of weddings being celebrated this year. We know spaces are at a premium right now, so we’re offering the chance to win a wedding reception at our Barrel Warehouse this fall. From the venue to the beer, food and flowers - Goose has got you covered!

How to Enter
