Goose Island and Section 8 Chicago would like to officially announce the second installment of our community partnership, Keller 31. A follow up to last year’s initial collaboration, the 20th Anniversary Black Lager, this Kellerbier symbolizes an alliance between two like-minded organizations that are pioneers in their respective fields. An ode to Chicago Fire midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, this unfiltered lager is a crisp, clean, no nonsense beer reminiscent of its namesake’s style of play. One of the oldest Bavarian styles will celebrate one of the most revered Bavarian players to ever take the field as he approaches what might be his final season on the pitch. Brewed utilizing a combination of Bavarian and Midwest Pilsen, Vienna, and Munich malts, German Hallertauer hops, and fermented with yeast from one of Munich’s great lager breweries, this Kellerbier brings together tradition, honor, and passion in a way recognizable to the Section 8 Chicago faithful and Goose Island drinkers alike. We are elated to share this special beer with you as Schweinsteiger’s testimonial approaches. It will be found at Section 8 Chicago partner bars starting August 27th, followed by a Chicagoland draft-only market release and a short stint at Toyota Park.
