Matilda - Goose Island Beer Company
Belgium is home to the best beers in the world...and the Belgian Style Ale represents the peak of the brewers art. Sophisticated brewing techniques, yeast blends, and unique flavouring elements have elevated the Belgian Style Ale to the level of fine wines. While spending some time in the Chicago area, we were tipped off by a friend and brewmaster that we should be drinking Matilda by the Goose Island Beer Company. While we are very familiar with the imported Belgian variety, we were blown away by the quality of Matilda. The imports have nothing on Goose Island, and as a matter of fact, they are one up on la Belgique with a name as simple and good as Matilda. Down side, we can't get it where we reside, and to that, we are bummed.
