Goose Island Beer Co. is going red today with its latest release

Foudre Red 18 is a 6.6 percent ABV oak-aged wild red ale aged in foudres for six months before being moved and aged an additional 12 months in bourbon barrels.

The Chicago-based brewery had released the ale as a draft-only option in early 2017, but it was then named Foudre Project No. 1 and came in at a slightly higher 6.9 percent ABV.

According to a post on Goose Island’s website Foudre Red 18 is packaged in 500ml bottles and will be released exclusively at the Fulton Street brewery in Chicago today.
