Friday at SoxFest with Goose Island Sox Golden Ale
I took a day from work on Friday, January 24, to go to the Goose Island media event before SoxFest. It was all right with work, since me and my fellow drones tend to hoard vacation days and try to use them up at the end of the year. No doubt about it, the McCormick... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Events, April 29-May 2
Just so you know, we did NOT get a chance to see "Avengers: Endgame" this weekend. So I will need to wean myself off the internet as much as possible.

Beer Review: Goose Island Bourbon County 2018
It was beginning to look like I might never get a chance at some of Goose Island's 2018 Bourbon County Brand beers. Oh, I was invited to the press and bloggers' preview in October, but my odd work hours would have meant losing much needed job hours that I couldn't afford at the time. And I had the chance to have some on tap in the intervening holiday weeks, but, well, the holidays mean taking care of other things...
