Goose Island’s 312 Urban Pale Ale Debuts
On March 12, 2014, also known as “3-1-2 Day”, Goose Island expanded its “312 Urban” line by unveiling the new 312 Urban Pale Ale nationally to complement its flagship beer, 312 Urban Wheat Ale.

312 Urban Pale Ale was inspired by the success and the brewing experience from Green Line Pale Ale – a Chicago-only, draft-only beer that supports Goose Island’s environmental and sustainable initiative. 312 Urban Pale Ale is Goose Island’s first year-round, national offering within the popular Pale Ale craft beer segment.
As with its exceedingly accessible and award-winning 312 Urban Wheat Ale, 312 Urban Pale Ale was brewed for those looking to enjoy another great Goose Island beer with their active lifestyle. The new 312 Urban Pale Ale is brewed with Amarillo, Mt. Hood and Nugget hops, and has a touch of sweetness from the caramel malt which makes this beer highly sessionable. 312 Urban Pale Ale also has a bright hop aroma and a crisp bitterness that treads lightly, yet noticeably, in international bittering units.
For craft beer fans’ drinking pleasure, 312 Urban Pale Ale is available nationally on shelves and taps on March 12, 2014 in the following packages: 12-ounce bottle cases (6-pack, 12-pack), 12-ounce cans (12-pack), 16-ounce cans (4-pack).
