Goose Island Tap Takeover
GOOSE ISLAND TAP TAKEOVER AT OLD TOWN POUR HOUSE
Showcasing the Entire Goose Island Portfolio • One Day Only • Two Sessions • Don't Miss It
In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, we're partnering with Goose Island for one of their largest tap takeovers ever. The taps, passed apps, and music will be flowing for a takeover like no other. We'll offer two sessions, 11 am-3 pm and 5 pm-9 pm.
On Friday, February 25th, 65+ taps will be taken over by Goose Island, featuring iconic and exclusive brews including a variety of Bourbon County Stout (2 yr. Reserve Rye, Cherrywood, Midnight Orange, Barleywine, Bramble, and others), vintage pours of acclaimed brews like Noel en Bois, Lolita, and Obadiah Poundage, over 20 barrel-aged selections, an amazing lineup of Virtue Cider, and much more.
Passed apps include loaded potato fritters, pretzel bites, tex mex egg rolls, duck confit tostadas, mini burgers, wild mushroom bruschetta, and peanut butter snicker shooters. Come hungry.
Goose Island's team will be onsite to talk all things beer. Tee shirts and swag will be available. VIP tickets offer mezzanine access, where five to eight special brews will live (TBA), including souvenir glassware. It's a party!
Be sure you are following us on social media to see real-time additions. Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event are on sale now and will go quickly.
Sneak Preview Beer Dinner
In addition to the main event, Old Town Pour House will also be offering a 5-course beer dinner on Thursday, February 24. Guests will enjoy a dynamic menu paired with exclusive brews, and the chance to hear from Goose Island brewers directly. Tickets are limited to 40 people. We'll offer two sessions, 5:30-7 pm and 8-9:30 pm.
