Josh Noel, the craft beer scribe who wrote "Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out: Goose Island, Anheuser-Busch and How Craft Beer Became Big Business" will talk beer at New Oberpfalz Brewery in Griffith Thursday, Nov. 29.
Noel, the craft beer beat writer for the Chicago Tribune, will read from and sign copies of his new book on Chicago's beloved Goose Island selling out to one of the world's biggest brewing conglomerates from 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 29 at the brewery at 121 E Main St. in downtown Griffith.
After the reading, Noel and New Oberpfalz founder and brewer Dan Lehnerer will do a panel discussion and take questions from attendees. The nonfiction book, published earlier this year by Chicago Review Press, about a story Noel originally broke as a newspaper reporter, will be available for sale.
It's gotten glowing reviews, with the Wall Street Journal describing it as an "accessible introduction to the business of brewing."
"You will better understand the battle for craft beer's soul that began when Goose Island was sold when you close the last page of the book," Sean Inman wrote in The Full Pint craft beer blog. "This is a must-read history for any fan, casual or obsessed, of beer."
Seating is limited.
