Second-Best Chicago-Related Story This Month

What’s the first?  Some dude.

This post, though, is about my favorite brewpub of all time. They just got a lease extension! Until yesterday, they were set to close up the Clybourn pub in late December of this year, but now:

John Hall, Goose Island’s founder and chief executive, said he reached a last-minute deal with the pub’s landlord to stay at 1800 N. Clybourn Ave. for three to five years, averting the closing of the homebase for Honker’s Ale and other brews at the end of 2008.

“I’m thrilled,” said Hall, who bought everyone in the place a beer. “They called me last week and said we want to try to do a deal. We compromised in a week on something we couldn’t do for a long time.”

I am absolutely ecstatic about this.  Closing this place would rip my heart up!

    Why is Goose Island your favorite brew pub? I do love Goose Island Stout!

    Should you come to Eau Claire, Northwoods Brew Pub makes a wonderful porter.

    I learned a significant chunk of what I know about beer by attending club meetings there from 1996-2000, and was friends with rather a lot of the brewers as well. We even had our rehearsal dinner there! Place is like a second or third home for me.
