“Meet and Greet” Featured Goose Island Beers 

Lolita is a pink rose colored Belgian style pale ale fermented with wild yeast and aged on raspberries in wine barrels. Aromas of fresh raspberries, bright jammy fruit flavors and crisp, refreshing body make Lolita ideal for beer drinkers fond of Belgian Framboise.

Leisure Suit

Leisure Suit is a well-balanced beer with 
aromas of papaya, guava, pear and fresh bread. It combines a single-heritage barley variety with #576, an experimental hop that has never been used commercially.

Ten Hills Pale Ale
With hops from the “first ten hills” grown for Goose Island at Elk Mountain Farms in Idaho, we crafted a pale ale that delivers both a herbal and citrus hop character. We hope you’ll find the intriguing balance of flavors in this beer to be truly unparalleled.

Our version of an experimental Sake Saision is an ale with Köji and sake yeast producing a hybrid beer like nothing Goose Island has done before.

Honker’s Ale

Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honker’s Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honker’s Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one you’ll look forward to time and again.
