Goose Island Brewing Company is bringing its world famous Migration Week to San Diego next week and they’ve invited you humans to the kickoff event! The event will feature a wide variety of Goose Island beers, food from local food trucks, and a back and forth game of SKATE as Chicago’s best skaters take on a couple of west coast skaters from 7-10 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, at the Quartyard (1101 G Street).

They’ll have a DJ spinning and Chicago artist Brain Killer painting a mural on a wall of skateboard decks. Of course, there will be plenty of Goose Island swag and the chance to sample some unique Goose Island beers.

Additionally, they have several other events taking place throughout the week they’d love for you to join – see below for the full list of events. Chances of spotting an alien or two at a few of these events are high, as you humans know wherever the beer goes, we go. With Goose Island migrating into town, an invasion is guaranteed.
