Remember when Old Style was the good beer at Wrigley Field?

Rough days.

Since parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev struck a deal to become Wrigley Field’s official beer sponsor in late 2013 (to start with the 2014 season), the presence of Goose Island has only grown at 1060 W. Addison St. And next month, the relationship will come to include a beer created to be paired with the World Series champs.

1060 Wit, which debuts at the home opener April 10, was designed to be sipped while watching baseball during the height of summer, Goose Island’s head of brewing research and development, Mike Siegel, said in a statement.

“The beer is inspired by traditional Belgian Wits, using a lot unmalted wheat along with orange peel and coriander,” Siegel said. “It’s lightly fruity and a touch spicy with low bitterness that is a natural fit for the ballpark and refreshing on hot Chicago days.”

1060 Wit will be on draft at kiosks around the ballpark, a spokeswoman said, and also be available at Goose Island’s taprooms on Fulton Street and (when reopened) Clybourn Avenue.

How long into the season the beer remains at Wrigley Field depends on sales, the spokeswoman said.

Now that the beer options are finally getting diverse at Wrigley, if only we could do something about that curse ...

Oh, wait. Never mind!
