Goose Island Brewing is planning to begin distribution to Georgia sometime in the 4th quarter of 2012. (October – December.) Below is a tentative lineup of beers Georgia can expect at the initial rollout:
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons. Availability: 12/4 pks, Draft.
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. Availability: 12 oz/ 4pks, Draft
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. Availability: 12 oz/4 pks, Draft.
With an aroma of roasted chestnuts and a mysteriously dark, mahogany hue, Pepe Nero is a farmhouse ale brewed with black peppercorns. His roasty sweetness melds into a lingering, earthy, black pepper finish that is ideal for pairing with grilled meats and roasted vegetables. Availability: 12oz/4 pks. No Draft.
