Taking a Gander at Goose Island

goose island
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Or, to put it another way, what is good for a man is equally good for a woman.
Goose Island Brewing Co. and the Black Squirrel Restaurant concur with an exclamation point in presenting the art of mixing beer and spirits, with a powerful feminine touch, on Thursday (Sept. 12) in the Tap Room. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The RSVP event commences at 7.
Morgan Tramontana, the manager and principal mixologist at the Libertine restaurant, will chair the women-strong, hear-them-roar festivities, along with Brett Robison, the self-proclaimed “beer dude” of 18th Street.
Tramontana and Robison have created five beer cocktails employing Goose Island products, specifically the Sofie, the Pepe Nero, the Matilda, the Nut Brown Ale and the Pere Jacques.
“We have put together a tasty series of cocktails, through trial and error and old-fashioned luck, and I think the patrons are going to have a wonderful time with it all,” Tramontana says.
The powers that be with Goose Island are contributing $1,000 to the good times, picking up the first drink of patrons.
Tramontana and Robison will teach the crowd the different ways to make beer cocktails, and then customers will have an opportunity to apply their new-found knowledge to this growing art.
“The last time I made a beer cocktail with Goose Island, during D.C. Beer Week, it was such a big hit that we came up with the idea to take it to another level,” Tramontana says. “I especially like the fact that we are appealing to women, who are an ever-growing force in the craft-beer marketplace.”
Goose Island . . . beer cocktails . . . and estrogen in abundance.
It is a stellar combination.
Men, as always, are welcome.
Remember to RSVP morgan2048atmsn.com.
