GOOSE ISLAND - Clybourn Brew Pub - Belgian Beer Fest (Beer sign-up)

Goose Island asked us to be a part of their Belgian beer fest on Sept. 13!

Here is the beer sign-up sheet. We will cap it at 20 gallons and one beer per person, no more than 5 gallons per person and no less than 2 gallons.

Also, we can only take (3) CHAOS volunteers to pour.

CHAOS will need to submit the final beer list on Monday Aug. 31 to GOOSE, so the Beer List will be on Lock-down after that. 

If you have questions, let me know. Cheers, Nanc

There is no minumum required

There is no minumum required by Goose other than have at least 15 gallons total, but I don't want it to get really confusing/sloppy for us by bringing too many different kinds of beers and keeping track of them all. I would say Minimum of 2 gallons, so either a case of 12 oz or 10-12 bombers, of the same beer/style.

Thanks! Nanc

Do not fret...There is still

Do not fret...There is still time to brew!

So if you haven't already signed up to bring one of your beers yet, please do so! We'd love to have a good mix of CHAOS brewers/beers in attendance. Idealy I'd like to have about 1-2 more Belgian beers on our list.

Final sign-up for beers at the fest will be Aug. 30. I need to submit to Goose Island what beers we are bringing so they can print up the promotion materials and menus for the event.

If you have any questions let me know.
Cheers, Nanc

Hey, I have a really awesome Saison. However, I wouldn't want to submit it unless I was there to serve it. I added the beer to the list - LMK.

I have a half dozen or so

I have a half dozen or so random sour ales, think one goes back to one of our first barrel projects three years ago. We could do a 2pm sour tasting, that went well at one of the Brew-Ha-Ha events we did.

Steven, That's a good idea. I will check on this split shift, and I like the idea of having a sour hour. I'll talk to Erica about it. Thanks, Nanc

OK. List is on lock-down. I submited our beers to Erica at Gosse Island Clybourn and she is cool with the (5) of us who signed-up to pour our beers to come.
 

It looks like a very tasty list. Thanks everyone for chipping in to brew or donate some of your beers for the fest!

Hey, anyone able to transport

Hey, anyone able to transport beer from the brewhouse to the event?

I have a keg in the fridge, it would be awesome if someone with a vehicle could bring my keg along.

I would be able to meet you at the brewhouse and get supplies over to the event and set up.

Hey Nancy,

Hey Nancy,

When are you doing keg pickups for the fest? I can meet you at the brewhouse.

Also, I believe we will need gas and picnic taps.

There is a second chaos tank

There is a second chaos tank that is full. I have a 4 way air manifold and we can use the club jockey box. Do we need a table? Our signage? Can we sell our t-shirts? I will be brewing that morning and won't be there before 12.

Jeff, can we use your tank

Jeff, can we use your tank for the event?

There should be enough gas in Jeff's tank, which is hooked up to my keg in the gross fridge.

Do we have multiple kegs?

Do we have a splitter to run multiple kegs?

It was good. Only our sours

It was good. Only our sours got polished off. we had a lot of beer options. We made some good connections with other breweries for Tuesday Brewsday and future member apperciatation parties, so it was a good smooze fest too.

Overall it was a very nice event, happy to have been a part of it, but it was a long day for those of us that set up and monitored everything.

I put the beers not drank in the Ferm room. There are 3 kegs, half empty and yours (jeff) and mine, remaining bombers. Mine have the yellow caps. I'll pick them up this week.

Cheers, Nanc

Nancy is right, it was a

Nancy is right, it was a great networking opp, and many of the brewers were willing to explain their recipes and processes, so it was very educational as well.

People responded well to sour ales released at specific times. Transient had lines form ten minutes prior to very limited bottle releases (they also had two kegs going throughout the day.)

We need a CHAOS jockey box to present better at these kind of events. We looked like the rinse station between two breweries.
