Goose Island Brewery

Chicago's Goose Island Brewery arrives in Toronto

Chicago's Goose Island Brewery is on its way to Toronto. Scheduled to arrive on LCBO shelves later this Spring, this cult-brewery from south of the border has been flexing its distribution muscle since it was acquired by Anheuser-Bush InBev a couple of years ago.

The two Belgian-style beers they'll be bringing are from their Vintage Ales line and will be sold in wine-style 765ml bottles for $9.95 as of April 29th although Twitter chatter suggests they might have already surfaced at LCBO's Summerhill location. They'll also be available at Nota Bene.

It may be AB InBev's dollars that have brought these beers here, but regardless of who's in charge, Torontonians can be thankful for the opportunity to try some really well made beers we may not normally have had a chance to get our hands on.
