Goose Island is back for another year of fierce competition, cold beer, and DODGEBALL. Their annual Battle of the Breweries Dodgeball Tournament is set for Sunday, May 20th and we’re giving away a pair of tickets for you and a guest!
Specialty beers include:
Say what?! And if that’s not good enough, there will be food from Girl and the Goat, DönerMen, The Fat Shallot, Yum Dum, 5411 Empanadas, and Bub City. Sounds like an excellent way to spend your Sunday if you ask us.
According to Twitter, Thursday, April 5th is #DeepDishPizzaDay. And as prideful as Chicagoans are, there are few things we do better than pizza (sorry New York City). Whether it’s the buttery-flakey crust from Gino’s East or Lou Malnati’s or the pan-style goodness from Pequod’s, there is deep dish style for everyone. Sure, it’s not necessarily the go-to pizza all the time–but when you do have it, it’s a real treat.
Our friends at Old Style also know a thing or two about pizza. Hell, they invented the annual Old Style Chicago Pizza Summit two years ago. This year’s Summit on April 22 is sure to be even better than the last two but unfortunately, it’s sold out…until now.
There are rivalries and then there are RIVALRIES. The Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Redwings have had a long and storied history, making for one of hockey’s greatest matchups. And how do you take an already legendary rivalry to the next level? Add amazing beer from amazing breweries.
That’s just what Goose Island did for their “Rivalry Series” game watch with Michigan’s Bell’s Brewery. Tickets are going fast here, but you can enter to win a pair of spots to this event of epic proportions by filling out the form below. Winners will receive two tickets to the event on Thursday, 1/25, 10 beer tokens, food from Girl & the Goat, Q & A with former players, and a once-in-a-lifetime game watch experience at the Goose Island Barrel Warehouse.
Not convinced? There will also be amazing beers from both breweries including…
Chicago comic Hannibal Buress is coming to town on December 29th for a special evening of beer, comedy, and music at the Civic Opera House.
