It looks like Goose isn't going to let COVID stop Stoutest in 2021. The email I just got is a little thin on details: two days, March 21 and 28 and "as always, we will be taking safety precautions extremely seriously for tastings and following all CDPH and state guidelines."

I didn't realize that there was a category under CDPH and IDPH guidelines governing nut-to-butt gatherings of neckbeards. Unless this event is being held outside (and maybe it is?), I don't understand how anyone thinks this is a good idea. I could see a tasting event at a cavernous space like Rev, or maybe at Goose's barrel-aging complex, feeling safer but an indoor event at Clybourn? Why not delay it until the fall?

Honestly, the idea of not having to stand in line and awkwardly point to a beer and mumble, “uh, that one, please” does sound kind of nice.

Still, no thanks.

LOL.

Nope. $140 plus fees for 90 minutes? Take me back to 2011.

People will still drink their samples while standing directly in front of the pouring tables, I know it.

It’s also not StoutFest if you can’t play the game of chicken where you try to get a sample without offering up a ticket.

Do they even do tickets anymore? I cannot remember the last time I was at a StoutFest.
