Goose Island Nice Surprise

Brewed by Goose Island Beer Co.

American Porter8.3% ABV24 IBU

A Real Nice Surprise draws inspiration from two holiday classics – eggnog and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. When our brewers sat under the train tracks sipping on the infamous, and high-octane, Tom & Jerry the team knew the flavors of eggnog, rum and bourbon needed to find a home in a holiday beer. A Real Nice Surprise starts life as a rich porter brewed with chocolate malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg that is then aged in a combination of rum, bourbon, and brandy barrels for two months resul
