Goose Island Update – First Tapping Tomorrow – Thursday March 8, 2012

Reposted from Blue Dog e-mail:

It’s been a long wait, but Goose Island Brewing Co. has arrived in Pennsylvania!  If you’re the type who lines up for the release of the latest iPhone, then you’ll want to be at Blue Dog Lansdale tomorrow.

Tomorrow Blue Dog Lansdale will be the very first establishment in Pennsylvania to serve Goose Island when we tap-

Matilda

Wild in character, with a slightly fruity aroma and a spicy yeast flavor that is as unique as it is satisfying – Matilda is an intriguing choice for beer and wine lovers alike. Dry and quenching, it’s the perfect accompaniment at the dining table or for casually socializing at the bar.

Style: Belgian Style Pale Ale Alcohol by Volume: 7%

Pere Jacques

Brewed with loads of malt and Belgian yeast, Pere Jacques is a wonderfully fruity, malty ale. Pere Jacques’ complex flavors stand shoulder to shoulder with the Belgian Dubbels enjoyed in the world’s finest beer bars. At the dining table it’s the perfect alternative to a glass of vintage port.

Style: Belgian Style Abbey Ale Alcohol by Volume: 8%

India Pale Ale

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.

Style: English Style India Pale Ale Alcohol by Volume: 5.9% International Bitterness Units: 55 Color: Bourbon Hops: Styrian, Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial

Nut Brown

Our Nut Brown Ale combines the finest domestic and imported malts to produce a chestnut-hued ale of unusual complexity. Subtle notes of chocolate, honey and fine tobacco give this ale an enjoyable and satisfying “nutty” finish.

Style: Brown Ale Alcohol by Volume: 5.3%

Summertime

The color of sunshine, with a light fruity aroma and a hint of fruity acidity, Goose Island Summertime is the perfect summer session ale. A Kölsch beer brewed in the traditional German fashion, you’ll find yourself enjoying and savoring each sip of summertime as much as you do those hot summer days and cool summer nights.

Style: German Style Kölsch Alcohol by Volume: 4.7%
