Given that most Black Friday shopping can now be done from the screen of your smartphone, you might be looking for a new way to spend the day after Thanksgiving. Alla Spina has an idea: come to Black Beer Friday with Goose Island Brewery between 12 and 3 p.m.
On the afternoon of Black Friday, Alla Spina is hosting a special tasting of this Chicago-based brewery's darkest, boldest brews, highlighting its 2017 Bourbon County Stouts. In addition to the classic Bourbon County Stout, Alla Spina will also be pouring the coffee, barleywine, and Northwoods varieties of the dark beer. There will also be other Goose Island staples on tap, like its IPA. Come to the free event for a pint and an opportunity to win a bottle of some of the rarer Goose Island Bourbon County Stouts.
