Join us for a talk by Josh Noel, author of Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out: Goose Island, Anheuser-Busch, and How Craft Beer Became Big Business. From the 1988 founding of Goose Island, a family-owned Chicago brewpub, to Anheuser- Busch’s purchase of the brewery in 2011, Noel documents the story of craft beer’s ascendency and its subsequent introduction into the mainstream market. Noel explores the craft beer “war” and the questions it raises for consumers, beer fanatics, small breweries, and the large-scale commercial beer industry. A reception kicks off the event at 6:30pm. Light appetizers, wine, and, of course, beer, courtesy of Evanston’s Sketchbook Brewing Co., will be served. A book signing follows the presentation. Copies of Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out will be on sale at the event. Admission: $10, payable at the door. Cash/Visa/MC. EHC Members free. EHC membership information and sign-up available online and at the event.
