Brewery tours and condos! Sales near Goose Island Brewery and Taproom in West Town

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 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 mother-load of barrel aged beer. Check out a ton of photos from Eater Chicago of this amazing barrel aged beer facility at 603 N Sacramento!

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!
