Goose Island: Run the Jewels

RTJ_Full_Beer_PageBrewer’s Notes:

This beer is a collaboration between hip-hop heavyweights Killer Mike and EL-P and Goose brewer lightweights Brian Taylor and Keith Gabbett. Run the Jewels — named after the duo’s new album — is a draft-only, special edition, dry-hopped Belgian Wheat Ale. A series of conference calls and emails produced a beer that invokes one of the duo’s favorite aromas *wink-wink* (via the unique 72-72 hop), “helps alleviate cotton-mouth,” and has a color that represents the status of their new record (gold).

Killer Mike and EL-P visited Fulton St. brewery in early June to brew with Brian and Keith. This beer will be available on draft, on-premise in Chicago for a couple weeks leading up to the festival and at the festival itself July 19-21.
