    Goose Island is owned by Anheuser-Busch, but many of its beers are still brewed in Chicago.

    To be fair, many New Yorkers consider anything outside the city limits a foreign country.

    But it doesn't explain why Yankee Stadium was selling Goose Island's India Pale Ale beer at import prices -- $12 each.

    Goose Island is a longtime Chicago brewery, but when it was bought by Anheuser-Busch InBev a couple of years ago, production of some of it's most popular brands, including India Pale Ale, was moved to other U.S. locations. That still makes it a domestic.

    DNA Info New York reports that Yankees concession officials are changing the signs at its four import beer carts to say "Premium Beer" instead.

    The concessions also came under scrutiny earlier this season for offering a craft beer booth that sold mass-marketed MillerCoors brands.
