'As announced earlier in the year, the Goose Island Brewpub on Clybourn will close with the expiration of its lease at the end of this year, more than twenty years after beginning the renaissance of brewing in Chicago, and earning its reputation as a world class center of excellence in brewing.
While we all - employees, customers, friends and lovers of beer - feel an immense sense of loss of this remarkable part of our history, the rich heritage that the brewers and staff of Clybourn have developed over the years will continue to grow at the Fulton Street Brewery and at Goose Island Wrigleyville, where we will continue to serve our many loyal customers and visitors with traditional, innovative, and excellent beers inspired by the best of the world's great brewing cultures and from our own imaginations.
Goose Island Clybourn will call 'time' on Sunday December 21st. The Goose Island family invites all of you to be there with them to savor that final pint.'
I'll be there without about two pitchers sloshing around in my stomach, care to join me?
