Surfrider Milwaukee hosted a workshop, Nov 14-15, in Shorewood, WI. In a gathering marked equally by work and play, four of the five Great Lakes chapters were represented. It was a fruitful, enjoyable communion of like-minded activists. Mostly, it was a chance for a group of chapters, united by a common interest in the Great Lakes, to finally meet one another, and learn about each other's regional issues and concerns.
We were asked to help Goose Island Brewery develop their last Fulton & Wood (limited edition) beer of the year. After several rounds of tastings, the time has finally come to reveal what Goose Island has been working on with a beach bash in the middle of winter (the only proper way to do it in Chicago!).
