CHAOS volunteers for West Town Bikes fundraiser

Morning Brewsters,

CHAOS has been invited to serve homebrew samples at Chicago Bike Revolution, a festival supporting West Town Bikes on Sat Sep 7th in Humboldt Park. If you remember New Belgium's Tour De Fat, this will be like that with lots of bike games and music all day long. Revolution Brewing is the main sponsor, so the only beer available all day will be RevBrew & CHAOS! Thankfully we'll be serving our samples for free and do not have to deal with collecting drink tokens.

Homebrew samples go fast, so I'm hoping we can get 12 kegs brewed for the event (or at least eight.) We can release beers staggered out on a schedule to make sure we do not run out of everything in a couple hours.

Supporting local charities is a goal for CHAOS, and it's cool we can help West Town Bikes, a neighbor of ours that develops youth programs for kids in the Humboldt Park area. http://westtownbikes.org/

Here's the beer donation signup sheet:

I'll post more info about volunteer tasks and time slots once we get a schedule.

I'm brewing for this and would like to volunteer as well. That said, I might have to work that weekend & I'll know my September schedule for sure about 3 weeks prior to the date.

Thanks Brandon, if I wind up

Thanks Brandon, if I wind up kegging a beer for you, I promise to follow instructions completely and not keg the wrong beer :-]

That being said, a return of The Pull-Out King would go over well!

I'm working on a saison

I'm working on a saison project this summer, so I'll be able to brew for this. Are we serving out of jockey boxes?

I assume we'll have to pour

I assume we'll have to pour samples for people, so jockey boxes seem like the solution, easy enough to transport.

We need a gator beer or two: Humboldt Gator Gose? Chance The Snapper Saison?
