I had a look at the beer on display in our local supermarket and noticed
from Goose Island Beer company
and I got
reminded of Goose Island, Oregon
which is mentioned in the Wargames
movie. So I bought a bottle of the beer and did some research when I got
And everything about that link turned out to be wrong.
The Goose Island Beer company
has nothing to do with Oregon, they are from Chicago, Illinois.
And according to Anderson Island (Washington) - Wikipedia English
the scene around entering "Goose Island, Oregon" in the movie
was actually filmed on
Anderson Island in the state of Washington. There is a small island named
"Goose Island" in the state of Oregon, it's an island in the Columbia river.
Goose island measures almost 1000 meters by 680 meters.

Having left me with nothing of the link(s) I suspected when I saw the bottle
there is only one thing to do: try the beer.
I would describe the colour as amber / dark amber. The smell and taste have
a strong hop influence. I personally like IPA beers, but this one is a bit
too bitter for me.
