Time Out says

Every year during Illinois Craft Beer Week, the folks at Goose Island Beer Co. set up a dodgeball court in the parking lot of its Barrel House and host a gigantic tournament. Teams representing 36 Illinois breweries show up to lob balls at one another in a single-elimination tournament that raises money for the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild. If you're showing up to watch the games, you'll recieve six beer tokens which can be redeemed for pours of sought-after Goose Island beers like 2015 Bourbon County Stout Rare and 2017 Bourbon County Stout Coffee (don't worry, there will also be some beers that aren't barrel aged for you to enjoy).
