Just to increase the anticipation about the number of posts that there will be about this Goose Island brewery tour, I need to add that the manager here in Chicago told me that the London outlet was soon closing. I wrote about that when I was in Chicago, and the venue is now the Queen’s Head. I’m not sure how many of the same staff are still there, but I hope that it does equally well as Goose Island did and I’m still moderately annoyed at what was apparently a profitable venue (or so they told me in Chicago) was closed.
Anyway, back to my visit. I had a brewery tour booked for later in the day, but they without any quibble just moved it forwards when I asked on entry. The omens were positive….
