Maybe it's time we were surprised by Sofie?
I'm not sure what to think about this weeks beer choice - Goose Island has a lot going for them like their Bourbon County series, and their love for making beers that can cellar for a while. Downsides: they're not considered a craft brewer anymore by the legal definition due to the ownership take of AB-INBEV.
Do we care about that? Does it matter? This weeks beer - Sofie - isn't brewed large-scale at the macro houses of Ft. Collins or STL. Still made small-batch in Chicago. Still able to sit on a shelf for like six years and have a different flavor profiles as the years go on.
An astute Beer Leaguer might notice that we only really have two Bourbon County beers a year - something like Sophie, and then we alway have the Barrel Aged Imperial Stout once it's available. Curious...
