Chicago’s Weekend in Craft Beer, February 26-28
today at 12:04 am
Hooray! Spring-like weather is finally here! For now. And let’s forget the “dibs” nonsense and get in on another winter tradition: guessing when the nearby snow pile will melt away!
Goose Island Beer Co. has built a “Meltdown Meter” next to a giant snowdrift outside of its Fulton Street Taproom. When the snow melts to each random, “perk” indicator on the Meltdown Meter, the Goose Island news release says, “It will unlock secret brewery offerings at the Goose Island Fulton Street Taproom….Think digging into the cellars and pulling out ultra rare beers, specials on beer and merch – even a taproom exclusive beer called ‘Meltdown’!”
Make sense as something to watch for. I’ve worked at suburban corporate offices where they ran a pool as to when the huge pile of plowed snow in the parking lots will disappear. Some guesses ran into that June.
