Sample New Brews, Chat About the Chicago Craft Beer Scene

Thursday, January 23
5-7 p.m.

Franklin Tap will hold a Goose Island “Meet and Greet” sampling event on Thursday, January 23. From 5-7 p.m., guests will meet Goose Island representatives and try some of the brewery’s newest and most innovative beers. Brewery ambassadors will chat about what it’s like to be at the forefront of Chicago’s craft beer scene, while sampling one of their latest efforts, Ten Hills Pale Ale, among others. The event is free to attend.

“Meet and Greet” Featured Goose Island Beers 

Lolita
Lolita is a pink rose colored Belgian style pale ale fermented with wild yeast and aged on raspberries in wine barrels. Aromas of fresh raspberries, bright jammy fruit flavors and crisp, refreshing body make Lolita ideal for beer drinkers fond of Belgian Framboise.

Leisure Suit

Leisure Suit is a well-balanced beer with 
aromas of papaya, guava, pear and fresh bread. It combines a single-heritage barley variety with #576, an experimental hop that has never been used commercially.

Ten Hills Pale Ale
With hops from the “first ten hills” grown for Goose Island at Elk Mountain Farms in Idaho, we crafted a pale ale that delivers both a herbal and citrus hop character. We hope you’ll find the intriguing balance of flavors in this beer to be truly unparalleled.

Kisetsu
Our version of an experimental Sake Saision is an ale with Köji and sake yeast producing a hybrid beer like nothing Goose Island has done before.

Honker’s Ale

Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honker’s Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honker’s Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one you’ll look forward to time and again.
