Goose Island to Begin Canning

It's not a big surprise to learn that Goose Island's 312 Urban Wheat Ale will be headed down the canning line soon. It was just a little over six months ago that Goose Island was bought by brewing behomoth Anheuser-Busch for close to $39 million dollars. Since then, a bulk of the brewery's production has shifted to the town of Baldwinsville, New York (pop. 7,053)  and the A-B plant. It's sort of funny when you think about it, Goose Island is a brewery which still depends on its origins in Chicago for marketing purposes whose beers are now being brewed and packaged in a tiny town in upstate New York. It's even funnier when it's this beer whose name signifies the Windy City's area code and it's so close to Baldwinsville's area code which is 315!

In all seriousness we wouldn't be too disappointed if Goose Island started putting their IPA in cans. Hint, hint. Look for 12 oz. cans of 312 Urban Wheat Ale sometime before summer of 2012. Cheers! 

From the Goose Island site:

Brewer's Notes:

Inspired by the city of Chicago and densely populated with flavor, 312’s spicy aroma of Cascade hops is followed by a crisp, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body that's immensely refreshing.
