2016 was a big year in Chicago sports and sausage history. The Chicago Cubs, winless since 1908, broke their infamous curse with an unbelievable, comeback, game 7 overtime World Series win that will stand forever as one of the great sports championship wins. The Bears…well, we imagine they enjoyed watching the Cubs just as much as we did. Gilbert’s was not only the Official Chicken Sausage of our hometown Chicago Cubs, but Chicagoland’s best-selling gourmet/specialty sausage.
Some of our Cubs-related highlights for the summer included:
- Being featured on the front page of the Chicago Tribune business section
- Being featured on both WGN and CBS morning news to promote our Wrigley-exclusive sausages
- Sending bleacher bum legend Jerry Pritikin to the World Series
We’re looking forward to another great season at the ballpark!
