Who makes the best beers in the Great Lakes region? There are so many great brewers, but we're going to let Chicago's Goose Island duke it out with Grand Rapids' Founders in our second split Total Tap Takeover.

Representatives of each brewery will be in attendance as each takes over approximately half the draft lines.

Departing from porcine tradition, Chef Chris Cameron's staff will pay homage to the stockyards and smoke beef briskets all day to present a beef barbecue platter that will have your mouth watering when it is released at 5pm!

The tentative lineup is as follows:

Goose Island
312 Urban Wheat
Honkers Ale
India Pale Ale
Imperial IPA
Mild Winter
Nut Brown Ale
Christmas Ale
Naughty Goose
Pere Jacques
Big John Imperial Stout
Night Stalker Imperial Stout
Bourbon County Stout

Pale Ale
Centennial IPA
Red's Rye
Imperial Porter
Breakfast Stout
Dirty Bastard
Backwoods Bastard
Bolt Cutter
Old Curmudgeon (2012)

This event is pay as you go with draft and food offerings available until gone.
