Tickets are still available for tomorrow’s (April 3) Goose Island Dark Traveler release party at Hopleaf in Andersonville. Tickets are $16.52 and includes beer and food. Hopleaf says all proceeds will go towards Brewers for Clean Water Campaign via Natural Resources Defense Council.
The Dark Traveler is the latest release from Goose Island’s Fulton Wood Series beers. Brewers will be in attendance at the release party from 7-9 p.m.
This latest in Goose Island’s Fulton & Wood series is a style rarely seen on tap in Chicago, the Munich Dunkel. Malt-forward, made with three types of wheat, Caramunich malt and Belgian oats. Brewers Dave, Keith, Brian and Ken also replicated the hard water profile traditionally found in Munich to accentuate the sweet malt flavors inherent in the beer. Finally, they used a mix of both Czech and American Saaz hops for subtle earthy hop flavor.
