Goose Island Is Brewing A Cubs Beer. Looks Delicious.
Move over Old Style, there's a new Cubs beer in town.
USAToday - 1060 Wit is a beer Goose Island created to celebrate Wrigley Field. Fans will notice the beer gets its name from the ballpark's address. The beer is inspired by traditional Belgian Wits, using a lot of unmalted wheat along with orange peel and coriander. It's lightly fruity and a touch spicy with low bitterness that is a natural fit for the ballpark and refreshing on hot Chicago days.
First of all if you're wondering why you know the address to Wrigley Field it's probably because of this scene:
Which led to this scene:
Illinois Nazis are the worst by the way.
But back to the beer 1060 Wit. This looks pretty awesome. I'm personally hit or miss on Goose Island beers. 312 is decent but after that nothing really wows me (except for Matilda) but the description for this one sounds excellent.
Orange peel, coriander, a touch spicy with low bitterness? Sign me up for a couple cases. I'm always looking for a beer that's actually refreshing on a hot day.
No word yet on where you'll be able to find it but if you do, drop me a line so I can get that nectar to my lips. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go watch the Blues Brothers for probably the 200th time.
