S08E01: The Goose Island Conspiracy

PODCAST | In this cinnamon-induced season opener, we are joined by the good people from Goose Island, who are presently making their debut in Australia. It’s an episode filled with Russian leaks, idiotic banter, and a repeated request for Bourbon County Brand Barrel Aged beers to make their way to Australian shores. It’s everything you could ever hope for in a season opener, and several things you probably have no need for.

And if that wasn’t enough, we talk about the real Goose Island, which we find out is essentially a series of basements and sub-basements running the length of Chicago.

Chris’ note: In this episode I mention a joke about glasses half full and half empty, but the joke is actually adapted from a much better line in Terry Pratchett’s The Truth.

Featured beers: Midway IPA by Goose Island.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
