Goose Island Brewery Tour

As a sponsor for the Pitchfork Music Festival, Goose Island Beer Co. has a kickoff party a couple days before the event. There was free beer and Vienna Beef hot dogs. It was really crowded with people that weren't really my style, but Hannah and I managed to sneak onto one of the brief tours of the facility, which made the adventure totally worthwhile.

Our guide. It was about 110 degrees and humid/loud as hell up here and throughout most of the building.

I've toured the Anheuser Busch brewery and been to the Guinness "museum" and Jameson Distillery in Ireland. This place was tiny as can be next to those.
