Brewery: Goose Island Beer Co. in Chicago, IL
The brewery has been 100% owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev since 2011.
Description: “Bubbly! A champagne inspired beer to celebrate a World Championship! 108 years in the making.” It’s a Belgian Strong Golden Ale. I get the champagne comparison, but there’s also a lot of Belgian yeast in there that gives it a unique taste. It was definitely good, though.
Medium: This beer was only available on tap at the Goose Island taproom on Fulton Street a little west of downtown Chicago. I had it during a trip Brewpub, which is how I drank it. You can’t buy it in stores, and it’s not even at Goose Island’s other brewpub in Clybourn. It’s no longer mentioned anywhere on their website – I think they had it on tap for a little less than a month after the Cubs won the World Series.
How it’s related to baseball: It’s a beer brewed in honor of the Cubs winning the World Series.
