This release is dedicated to Jonny, a long time Goose Island employee. Jonny, and Brewer Quinn, came up with this recipe after Jonny’s recent victorious battle with cancer. Jonny lost the ability to taste many flavors, an unfortunate consequence of battling cancer. He almost completely lost is palate and mangos and cinnamon were two of the few things he was still able to taste.
We’re happy to say that Jonny is now a cancer survivor! This beer pays tribute to the flavors that were never lost.
A portion of proceeds from this beer will go to support the life changing research at the Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University, where Jonny was treated.
Huge selection! Regular prices are good for a specialty store. They have a very well priced clearance section. Staff is friendly. Some of the beers are quite old though (some had canning dates of 2017, so just check them).
