When White Sox fans visit Guaranteed Rate Field this season, they’ll be hard-pressed to miss the gigantic Goose tap marker sitting atop the right field bleachers. As part of a new marketing agreement between the White Sox and Goose Island, the section will now be known as “The Goose Island,” literally surrounded by cascading water and directly above the Goose Island Craft Kave. TJ Annerino, Director of Experiential Marketing for Goose Island, was part of the driving force behind the project.
“I wanted to do something eye-catching, something that would get the chatter going,” says Annerino, who has been working at Goose for about six years. Drawing inspiration from notable stadium build-outs in Arizona (pools), Milwaukee (slide), and Kansas City (fountains), Goose Island and the White Sox collaborated to come up with The Goose Island.
