Goose Island has ramped up production on two yearly releases, Lolita and Juliet, their wine barrel aged Wild Ales. The increase in production also moved the bottles from 22 oz to 750 ml, giving them a look more akin to a wine bottle. Today, Mike and Shane are sampling Juliet which is fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with blackberries.

Dubbed in-house at Stoudts as “Winey Dog” – this iteration of Fat Dog is aged in red wine barrels for 14 months, putting a unique spin on their classic Imperial Oatmeal Stout. I had the chance of grabbing a pour on-tap at Stoudts and also took a few bottles to-go. Previously, the only other iteration of Fat Dog to be bottled to my knowledge has been a bourbon barrel version.
