Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2018 500ml - [Limit 1 per customer]

ABV 14.7%
Sold out

More than twenty years ago Greg Hall wanted to brew something truly unique for Goose Island brewpub’s 1000th batch - he just needed inspiration. Then a chance encounter between Greg and Jim Beam’s legendary distiller, Booker Noe, led to Goose Island acquiring the barrels for what was to become the world’s first bourbon barrel aged beer. 

Since then, the beer has become a local favourite and globally known beer - and still people line-up down the street for its Black Friday release in Chicago.

Our 2018 Original Bourbon County Brand Stout is aged in 4+ year old Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels, the original bourbon barrel aged stout is as good as when we first made it over 20 years ago. Flavours of cocoa, vanilla, caramel, almond, cherry, plus leather and tobacco flavours permeate this complex beer that deepens with each sip.

As Brewmaster Jared Jankoski stated, “It ain’t broke, and we didn’t try to fix it.”
