Goose Island Continues Canadian Migration with Honkers Ale


TORONTO, ON – Two months after the arrival of Goose IPA, another brand from Chicago’s Goose Island Beer Co. is starting to appear on shelves at Canadian beer retailers.

Honkers Ale is an English Style Bitter that has been available on draught at select licensees in Canada for some time, and is now showing up in bottles for retail sales.

The 4.3% abv and 30 IBU ale is described as follows:

Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honker’s Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honker’s Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one you’ll look forward to time and again.

Canadian brewing and distribution of Honkers Ale is being handled by Labatt Breweries, a sibling company of Goose Island under the AB InBev corporate umbrella.

Goose Island Honkers Ale will be distributed in all provinces except PEI and Newfoundland, with format availability – 6, 12 & 24 packs of bottles, and draught – varying between regions. For more details, contact local your beer or liquor retailers.
