    So a GI brewer tells me the 3 variants this year are:
    1. Coffee
    2. Coconut
    3. Mulberry & Marionberry in Rye barrels
    I didn't ask about the status of the barleywine.

    EDIT: This was mentioned earlier in the thread, minus the marionberry aspect (which I had no idea was a real berry, apparently that's the namesake of the embattled ex-mayor.)

    I heard from a brewer as well. I just hope the Marionberry infusion doesn't taste like crack and tax evasion.

    3rding this. Goose Island rep @ a beer pairing event confirmed the above 3 variants (coffee, coconut, & mulberry). When I asked if the coconut variant would be aged in rum barrels he said "no"

    I thought he just sensed it using the dark side of the force?

    Marionberry means blackberry.
