Its sunny summers and trouble free growing seasons yield stunning chardonnays, sauvignon blancs, and cabernet sauvignons. Here are some highlights, from both the Barossa Valley and the Margaret River, all ready to enjoy tonight.

New from Goose Island

Goose Island Binny's

 

Goose Island Four Star Pils

Aiming to quench a growing thirst for more sessionable brews, many craft breweries are taking their stab at an old world classic. The refreshing simplicity of a well-made Pilsner ironically makes it one of the most difficult beers to brew. Goose Island’s Four Star Pils is built around a unique combination of both new and old world hops. It’s crisp and clean with a finish that is both citrusy and herbaceous.

 

Goose Island Green Line

The wait is finally over! Until now, Goose Island’s wildly popular Green Line Pale Ale has only been available on draft. This well-balanced American pale features flavors of toasted malt alongside a citrusy hop profile with just a touch of pine.

Hop of the Month: Citra

Since its introduction in 2007, the elusive Citra Hop has been in high demand and low supply. Brewers lucky enough to get their hands on some have made some amazing beers. Originally known as HBC 394 cv, Citra is aptly named, imparting fresh citrus aromas and flavors, plus a variety of tropical fruit notes. Not just delicious on its own, Citra is a team player that works beautifully with other hops, too. Check out these delicious brews showcasing the flavors of this hot, hip hop.
