Fluid: Goose Island Honkers Ale

October 3, 2010

an average menu, except...

Every so often I come across a new beer in an unlikely place. This weekend, sandwiched between a beer that drinks like a meal and a hoppy ipa, I discovered Goose Island Honkers Ale. While I am skeptical of its brewer’s claim that it is “the beer you can trust,” I will say that it was malty, fruity, and easy to drink.

I had never heard of Goose Island before, but apparently they are a father/son operation that has been brewing beer in Chicago since 1988, and have won awards at the Great American Beer Festival for fourteen years in a row. Good for you, Goose Island.

    Oh dude, I can tell you A LOT about Goose Island. I really like their Green Line IPA, but that is not available outside of Chicago. You should also try their Night Stalker and Matilda – those you should be able to get. The Night Stalker is desserty and more of a sipping while playing Scrabble beer.
