Goose Island coming to Louisiana

Goose Island Beer, from Chicago, will soon make its way to  Louisiana, and a release party has been scheduled for Monday, September 24th at Avenue Pub in New Orleans.

According to Polly Watts at Avenue Pub, “Initially just the vintage series. They are doing a staged rollout which I think has as much to do with their production capabilities as anything else. Everything else will come in time. Don’t think it will be too long a wait for the Bourbon County Stout.”  The first 3 to hit New Orleans will be Sofie (a saison), Matilda (a Belgian pale ale) and Pepe Nero (a dark saison/farmhouse ale). I’ve been fortunate enough to try all 3 of these, and they are fantastic.

This is very exciting for the south Louisiana area, and it’s good to see more craft beer (even if they are a subsidiary of InBev) entering our market.
