Goose Island is installing its own ‘island’ in the home of the White Sox

The White Sox are making an upgrade in right field during the off–season, but its name doesn't begin with Bryce and end with Harper. This morning, the White Sox and Goose Island Beer Company announced that when baseball season starts later this year, Guaranteed Rate Field will boast a new seating section in right field called "The Goose Island."

"The Goose Island" replaces two previous seating sections and will have a capacity of 326. The front rows of the section feature luxurious seats, complete with armrests, cupholders, phone charging ports, televisions, storage space and $20 of food, beverages or merch included in the ticket price (amenities that probably won't come cheap). The most noticeable feature of the new section are the four functional water fixtures that surround it, making the area an actual island amid the rest of the park.

Even if you don't snag a seat in the section, you'll still be able to order beers at the new Goose Island Beer Company walk-up bar, located directly behind the seating area and accessible from the 100-level concourse. Nearby, you'll find a 10-foot-tall Goose Island tap handle statue that you can snap a photo in front of. 

In addition to the "Island," Goose Island also secured naming rights to the bar next to the visitor's bullpen, which will now be known as the Goose Island Craft Kave (though it sounds like it may still serve beers made by local brewers not named "Goose Island"). The section will be ready in time for Sox home opener on April 4, which is only 66 days away.
