Default AB to Roll-out Goose Island Nationally

Bump:

"Anheuser-Busch announced it will do a national roll-out of Goose Island Beer which the company acquired last year. Currently, the beers are only sold in Chicago with limited availability elsewhere.

The beers will begin popping up in shops in September and the company hopes to have their brews in all 50 states by November. They plan on a draft-only roll-out to begin by December followed by six and 12 packs by March of 2013.

The brands that AB will take nationwide will be 312 Urban Wheat Ale, Honker’s Ale and a variety of seasonal brews. Anheuser-Busch has already begun production at their Colorado and New York state breweries."

Currently, you can find it almost everywhere in the midwest. I believe they distribute to a few states on the east coast and a state or two out west.

yeah that is kind of a weird statement. i can find all their stuff (all) at my local liquor store. i can find most of their stuff (ie, everything but bcbs rare, more or less) at my local grocery store.

Yeah, I thought that was weird too. I added quotes so you know I wasn't the one who said it, just repeating what the admin at probrewer wrote.

One of my local liquor stores, here in Maryland, had a Goose Island tasting on Friday. This was the first time I had tried any of their beers, and with 5 or 6 on hand, they had a fairly good variety. I did like the IPA, although I didn't think it tasted all that hoppy to be called an IPA (website says 55 IBU). It seemed balanced and tasted pretty good, seemed worth buying a six pack.
