Origin: Chicago, Ill
  • Like the digits suggest, it's a beer that's densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don't filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That's how you know it's unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. 4.2% ABV.

  • Goose Island’s Cascara Grisette is a truly unique take on an uncommon beer style. The Grisette style, originally brewed for miners in Belgium’s Hainaut province, is a type of Saison that was served to miners after a hard day’s work. Some say the term Grisette refers to the “grey” rock dust found on the miners. Cascara is a dried fruit from coffee cherries which are usually discarded after harvesting the coffee. With the addition of cascara, Goose Island’s Cascara Grisette is a crisp and refreshing, dry ale with hibiscus and raspberry notes. 4% ABV.

  • Goose Fest Bier is brimming with notes of toasted malt and freshly baked rye bread. This light-bodied German lager is clean and crips with a fine noble hop character and mild earthy bitterness that is the hallmark of Hallertau hops. 5.7% ABV.

  • A hoppy take on the pilsner, using Mt. Hood, Meridian and Equinox hops. 5.1% ABV.

  • Goose Island Halia is a sour peach saison aged in wine barrels with Brettanomyces Claussenii and fifty pounds of peaches per barrel. 7.5% ABV.

    Our India Pale Ale recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result is a hop lover's dream with a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, and long hop finish. 5.9% ABV.

  • A black rye saison that combines a roasted/smoky malt character in balance with a pepper spice from the yeast. Finishes dry with a refreshing level of carbonation. 6% ABV.

  • Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons. 6.5% ABV.
