Default Goose Island

So, I'm in San Diego and I would have never heard of this brewery if it wasn't for this site. With that being said does anyone know where I can try some? Get some? Buy Some? What styles to try? I have only heard good things from you guys and I love good craft brew so I thought I'd ask.

hah yeah Russian River is easy for me to pick up Location, Location, Location plus it helps that Stone is there distrubutor. What sours would you want, ya know if you're serious. Ya know dependent if I could find the ones you want. Which reminds me I was at Stone a few weeks ago and had a Pliny the Elder and a Pliny the Younger God I love those beers..

Their Honkers Ale is a great session beer. I also like their IPA a lot, it's described as an English IPA (I think the grain bill is 100% English base malt) but it has a lot of nice American hop flavor. It's not crazy and over the top like a lot of IPAs these days, just a very well balanced beer.

I am in love with there "sophie" and "matilda". If you have not ever had a saison, or a beer with Brett, try them. They are my favorite beers of all time.

I've only seen it at one place and it's on my list of things to get. A place next to my house called Jumbo's liquor. It's next to the clairemont DMV. Great beer selection.

I opened a bottle of Matilda last night. It's one of the best beers I have ever had. I'll be picking up a bunch more next time I'm in Chicago.

Drinking a Goose Island IPA right now. Since I'm a few hours from Chicago, it is very common at stores around here. Bottles are great too, sturdy and the labels fall right off in the dishwasher without residue.

Now that Goose Island is owned by AB-InBev, I'm guessing it will have national distribution soon.
