At the corner of Fulton & Wood streets in Chicago, Goose Island’s original brewery has been a hub of innovation since its doors opened. To this day, the spirit of experimentation remains strong with the Fulton & Wood series. Each release gives Goose Island employees from throughout the company the chance to work with our brewers to concept new, exciting beers from scratch.
Fassinator, pronounced “Fahss-in-ator” like Arnold Schwarzenegger would say, is Goose Island’s take on a Blonde Doppelbock. The name is derived from the combination of the German word for on draught, “Vom Faß”, and the traditional ending of most doppelbocks,“–ator”. Fassinator has a subtle hop aroma with a moderate body, smooth biscuit malt flavor and moderate bitterness creating a unique balance to this classic style. Don’t underestimate this beer however, Fassinator clocks in at 8.0% ABV.
