Goose Island Proprietor’s Days
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Goose Island Proprietor’s Day is usually an afternoon gathering on the streets outside of brewery's Fulton Street facility, where lucky lottery winners get to pick up bottles of a brand new Bourbon County Stout variant while enjoying some drinks. There won't be a large in-person gathering to mark Prop Day this year, but Chicagoans will still be able to snag bottles of the stout, which is inspired by the Italian treat spumoni, with notes of pistachio, cherry and chocolate.
For a chance to purchase two bottles of 2020 Proprietor’s Bourbon County Stout, one bottle of 2020 Bourbon County Stout Special #4 and a Prop Days Exclusive barrel-aged stout, you'll need to enter the lottery on Goose Island's website before midnight on Monday, October 12. If you're selected, you'll need to pay $130 for your allotment and select a time to pick up the bottles at the United Center on November 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 or 29.
While it's not the same as a November street festival outside of the brewery, you'll still have a chance to raise a glass of the boozy stout as the weather gets chilly—just don't forget to enter the lottery!
