The event, taking place on 24 September at Red Market in Shoreditch, will include live bands, Goose beers, food and games. Guests will be able to sample Goose IPA, Honkers Ale and 312 Urban Wheat Ale, across all our bars while a vintage tap room will feature some of the brand's more unusual Goose Island beers that will be time-tapped across the day, with exclusive tasting sessions available. Music will be provided by top local DJs and the event will take place both indoors and outdoors. 

Food will be provided by Club Mexicana, Howards Meat Co, Little Ghost Black Bagels, South East Cakery and Sutton & Sons.

Now in its fifth year stateside, Block Parties in Chicago have a reputation for bringing together unreal line-ups of live music and the brand says the London leg will be no different. 

Earlier this year, Goose Island hosted its first London-based 312 Day party at Hoxton Docks, which included a performance from the Mystery Jets.
