News: Goose Island IPA Declared "Best Beer in the World"

Kudos to Goose Island, one of Chicago's best known breweries. A BeerAdvocate article reports that Britain's craft brew cognoscenti Roger Protz has declared that Goose Island IPA “may just be the best beer in the world.” Protz is an accomplished beer writer, CAMRA member, and recipient of numerous awards, including Beer Drinker of the Year.

Of course, as the article points out, determining the "best beer" is a little like a author what his or her favorite book is or a musician what his or her favorite song is--so much depends upon subjective tastes (and a red wheelbarrow). All that being said, it's great to see Goose Island receiving accolades from across the pond. Goose Island is so widely available that sometimes it is overlooked in lieu of the rarer, more extreme beers. But Goose Island makes solid, consistent, and interesting beers and it's great to know that I can find it on tap all over town.

So you drink Goose Island and watch sex ed tapes, eh? That's your game?
