You may have recently noticed the reemergence of Goose Island beers in the Pacific Northwest. After disappearing from the market a few years back, the Chicago brewery has been moving its specialty beers back onto shelves to the delight of those craving a more diverse selection.
Brewpublic was kindly invited to attend a special meet the brewer event at Davis Street Tavern featuring Goose Island Brewmaster Greg Hall. Here Hall to showcased three special release brews from his Chicago, Illinois brewhouse. These included Sofie, Matilda, and Pere Jacques. Hall is a proponent of pairing food and beer and encourages folks to bring beer “to the table.” Davis Street Tavern Executive Chef Gabriel Kapustka prepared some appropriate h’orderves. In a thoughtful speech, Hall addressed a small crowd that we offer you in two portions.
Here’s part two, also featuring chef Gabriel Kapustka.
