Goose Island Guest Spices Up Flossmoor Station Brewmaster Dinner

2008_07_luau.jpgFlossmoor Station Brewpub and Restaurant has this nice little luau-themed brewmaster dinner planned for next Tuesday at 6 p.m. The guest of honor for the event will be Wil Turner, the extraordinarily talented brewmaster for Goose Island's Clybourn brewpub. Andrew Mason, Flossmoor Station's head brewer, said in an e-mail that Turner will be bringing along Goose Island's 20th Anniversary Celebration ale and a Belgian black ale called "Noire."

Having attended a couple of Goose Island Clybourn's brewmaster dinners we can tell you that it's fun to twist Turner's ear for a while. He's very generous with his time and knowledge during those dinners. To have both Turner and Flossmoor Station brewmaster Matt Van Wyk in the same room should be a spoil of riches for attendees.
