|The start of our Goose Island Brewery tour at 1800 West Fulton Street, Chicago IL 60612 in West Town over Labor Day weekend. We had an amazing host, learned a ton and it was nostalgic too! |

A couple weeks ago our buddies at Inkt Marketing
(official supplier of ericrojasblog.com swag) took a group on a VIP tour of Goose Island's West Town taproom
and their off-site barrel aged warehouse in East Garfield Park
. The tour was an awesome auction item won through Northeastern Illinois Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf event
The barrel aged beer tour was a thrill for all of us.
We had a fantastic 2013 Bourbon County Brand Stout the minute we stepped in the door. Wow!
|We'll take the big one!|
Back at Goose Island's Fulton tap room the crowd was hopping on a Sunday afternoon over labor day. Let's check out the area condo sales around the 1800 West Fulton facility.
|West Town area around the Goose Island Brewery and Taproom.|
In the roughly four block radius around the Goose Island Taproom at 1800 West Fulton only 22 condos have closed from January 1st to September 15th 2017. The median price of a condo in this radius is $485,000
. The surprisingly (to me) low number of unit sales either reflects no one wants to move - or more likely - the area is still dominated by commercial buildings. A new construction 15 unit condo building at 469 N Paulina accounts for five of the sales and the highest priced condo sale at $670,000.
In 2012 (the year the Chicago condo market started to bounce back) a measly 9 condo units sold over the same period with a median price of about $150,000!
