The crew here at Evening Star is thrilled to officially welcome the Chicago brewing team form Goose Island to the area! On Thursday, March 29 join us for the Goose Island Alexandria launch party as we pour SEVEN of outstanding brews that span the gamut from their Matilda Pale Ale to the nutty Goose Island Brown Ale. An awesome opportunity to try some of the best craft beers coming out of the Midwest right now!

GOOSE ISLAND DRAFT LIST:

SOFIE:
Style: Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 6.5%
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.

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

PERE JACQUES:
Style: Belgian Style Abbey Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 8%
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.

HONKER’S ALE:
Style: English Style Bitter
Alcohol By Volume: 4.2%
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.

INDIA PALE ALE:
Style: English Style India Pale Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 5.9%
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.

NUT BROWN ALE:
Style: Brown Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 5.3%
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.

Cost: Free
