There’s a loose goose hitting Aldi’s middle aisle, ​not the fluffy feathery kind, but a delicious fruity and hoppy India Pale Lager (IPL). Supermarket Aldi and Chicago’s award winning brewery, Goose Island, have teamed up to launch an exclusive special edition lager in stores from Thursday 25th August (£1.49 per 330ml can). 

Expertly dry-hopped with Mosaic, Cascade and Amarillo, Goose On The Loose IPL oozes aromas of peachy-pine and malty biscuit. Refreshing and full of flavour, this delightful combination of a crisp, fruity lager and the hoppy taste of an IPA is the perfect accompaniment for summertime sipping and al fresco dining. 

What’s more, for lager fans that fancy themselves a bit of a hop-head, Goose Island Beer Co. is giving one lucky shopper the chance to win a trip for two to the Windy City of Chicago, USA – home of Goose Island Brewery! To be in with a chance of winning, all shoppers need to do is follow @gooseislanduk, share a snap of the can on social channels using the hashtag #AldiGooseOnTheLoose, and tagging in  Goose Island UK* – but where will the goose end up?! 

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “Partnering with Goose Island Beer Co. supports our mission to work with the best suppliers. Not only is the Goose Island team passionate about craft beer, but they are also committed to delivering the kind of flavoursome lager our customers want and expect.” 

Matthew Koep, Brand Manager of Goose Island Beer Co. comments: “The Aldi Goose On The Loose IPL is a chance for us to showcase the flavourful craft beers that have made us famous whilst doing it in a new way that will invite more beer drinkers into the world of Goose Island. Aldi is a perfect partner to help us spread the word and Goose on the Loose is an exciting addition to our range.” 

Shoppers can head to Aldi ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend to discover new worlds of flavour, with the brew-tiful Goose On The Loose IPL.  

Competition entries open from Thursday 25th August 2022 until Thursday 8th September 2022. For the full terms and conditions, visit the Goose Island competition page on
