Goose Island Beers are Coming

About two years ago the Utah Department of Alcohol Beverage Control began a restructuring at their main warehouse in Salt Lake City. The goal was to free up space in the severely overcrowded downtown space. One of the options was to get the majority of the beer out of there and into the hands of local distributors. This decision is one of the best ideas to come out of the DABC in quite some time.

Besides cold storage, it has opened up the beer markets to a host of craft brands that may have shied away from Utah because of it's less than delicate treatment of their products.

Over the last few months we've enjoyed spreading the word of new craft beers coming into the market, today we have another notable breweries brands coming. Goose Island Brewing.

Founded in May 1988 by John Hall in Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois. Goose Island produces several
year-round and seasonal styles of craft beer, the best-known of which are 312 Urban Wheat Ale, Honker's Ale and their most sought after beer, Bourbon County Stout.

Anheuser-Busch bought Goose Island in early 2011, after helping distribute the Chicago-based company's beers for several years. The move means that the Goose Island craft brews will be among few of its kind available for purchase in all 50 U.S. states.

While some higher-end beers will still be produced in Chicago, some of its bigger sellers will be churned out at Anheuser-Busch breweries in Fort Collins, Colo. and Baldwinsville, N.Y. Goose Island beers should be popping up in SLC near the end of November.

Are there any Goose Island labels that your really hoping to see?

Cheers!

This is certainly an interesting move. I wonder if this isn't just the case of setting a goal to be in all 50 or something more serious for us. They have increased brewing capacity. BCS (Bourbon County Stout) is an amazing beer, world class. I'd buy many of those! They also have a good Imperial IPA. If BCS was available locally I'd be damn happy.

When is this happening?!!!

Their standard IPA is ok. Local IPAs much better flavor, but diversity is good!

I really liked a trappist style brew called Pere Jacques from them. I don't know if it was a small batch thing, or not, though.
