    Yes, Goose Island. Good stuff. I noticed the new label describes it an an English style IPA, which I think is quite ironic given the number of UK craft beers which are marketed as US style...

    A bottle in my local supermarket costs £1.79, or $2.77 according to Google's exchange rate. It was on offer today, at 4 bottles for £6, or $2.32 each. I'm guessing that might seem quite expensive compared with what you'd pay in the US but like I say, it costs no more than a similar UK beer.

    I've mostly been drinking rum punch this evening, mind, so apologies for any spelling mitsakes.

    It's pretty straightforward, of course, but for reference the original recipe is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/pi...imevanil_91730

    Plenty of local beers well over $2.50/bottle over here. Very impressed it made the trip...

    Goose Island is from Chicago...they make a Belgian Style Pale Ale called Matilda that I love...If you don't like strong, hefty Belgian beers than stay away but you can get a 4 pack of Goose Neck varieties at Wegmans here in central mass for I think $9 so you're paying about $2.25 a beer which is 7% and tasty...So it works out that 4 beers = 1 bottle of wine so if you're going to spend $20 on a nice bottle of wine the cold beer is 1/2 price
