Fulton & Wood Bottle: Goose Island Shred the Gnar

Goose Island Shred the Gnar

Goose Island Shred the Gnar debuted in the brewery’s Fulton & Wood Series late last year. The was was a collaboration with Surfrider Chicago Foundation. At the time, Goose Island Shred The Gnar was a draft only offering limited to Chicago.

Now, Gnar looks at bottles. An imperial India pale ale brewed with Michigan cherry juice, and lemongrass.

Shred the Gnar is brewed to celebrate those passionate few who brave the waves of Lake Michigan in the dead of winter. While our passion lies in brewing, we know what it means to do what you love to the extreme. We brewed this beer to be big and hoppy with the West Coast surf culture in mind while adding a Midwest twist with tart Cherry juice from Michigan. To make this beer just a bit more gnarly we threw in some fresh lemongrass to create a bright aroma that keeps you coming back for more. We hope this beer will help warm up all those who get out and Shred the Gnar in whatever ways they love this winter.

Goose island Shred the Gnar will be a 12 ounce bottle offering. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Cherry Juice, Lemongrass)

Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) Releases July 15th

Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau

Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) releases July 15th. A special collaboration with Hawkshead Brewery based in the United Kingdom.

Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) is part of the Tran-Atlantic Rainbow Project, a series that challenges brewers to brew a beer inspired by a color. To create Key Lime Tau, the brewery created a mixed culture fermentation wild ale, aged in oak with lactose, fresh lime peel, and lemongrass.

“Key Lime Tau is a riff on a friend of ours’ beer Limoncello. We decided to put our own spin on a Limoncello and it came out very much like a Key Lime Pie,” said Yakobson. “We chose to call this beer Key Lime Tau as ‘tau’ is mathematically 2π and since the collaboration was brewed at both Hawkshead and Crooked Stave, two versions exist making it two Pies.”

Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) will be available in their taproom at 3350 Brighton Blvd at 6 pm on July 15th.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Lemongrass, Lime Peel, Lactose. Oak Aged)
Release: 7/15/15
