Goose Island Beer Company is stoked to announce its first ever European Brewpub will open its doors on Wednesday, 21st November. Located in the heart of Shoreditch, fans of the original Chicago craft beer brand will enjoy a triple threat offering of great food, live music and delicious beer at what is set to be a super rad venue.
Inspired by its much beloved sister Brewpub in Chicago, the Shoreditch Brewpub will be a welcome addition to the east London high street, as it brings home to the UK previously unavailable Goose Island brews like Old Man Grumpy (5.8% ABV), Fog Bowl (7.2%) and Next Coast (7.2% ABV), alongside its highly sought after Bourbon County Stout (14.1% ABV), award-winning range and local collaboration beers. Also available will be a Chicago-inspired menu featuring a truly unique pizza selection, subs and classic American favourites like wings and pretzel bites with beer cheese sauce to match.
Not satisfied by just serving great beer, Goose Island will also mark the Shoreditch Brewpub’s grand opening with live music and free pizzas throughout the night. Ongoing programming at the Brewpub will include both indie and headliner live acoustic and DJ acts, one off microbrews, tap takeovers, and brewery tours.
Heading up the Brewpub will be Goose Island’s very own Siebel Institute certified UK Brewmaster Andrew Walton, who returns to London following a month long immersion in Chicago where he learned all the Goose tricks of the trade. Responsible for the creation of microbrews made on site, Walton will also be the first in Europe to manage the Rack AeriAle system, an innovative nitrogen draft-dispensing system that connects barrel-aged beers directly to the pub’s tap system without the risk of oxidization.
