Ken and I were at the Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub for the release of Night Stalker and the monthly beer swap. The Night Stalker is part of Goose Islands new Fulton Wood Series coming in at an ABV of 11.7% and 60 IBU’s. If you’re a fan of the famous Bourbon County Stout then the Night Stalker is something you’re going to want to check out. Next to the Night Stalker tap they also had Summertime as well, which is a solid beer but nothing amazing. But what was very interesting was they were doing blends of the NNight Stalker and the Summertime. The blend was super interesting and made the already drinkable Night Stalker even more so. Since the Night Stalker was being released, the beer swaps theme was porters and stouts; the idea was that you bring a stout or porter to share. A huge stand out of the night was the Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter someone brought to share. Overall this past Thursday’s beer swap was a blast. Shout outs to all the great people we had a chance to chat with including Jonathan Surratt of Draft Magazine & beermapping.com, P.J. Fisher the event coordinator at Goose Island and Randy Mosher. See everyone at the next event.
