We are excited to bring you another release of Goose Island’s coveted bourbon barrel aged stouts! And while this year’s release is a little… well, different, we think you’re going to really enjoy what Goose Island is bringing to the table this year. From maple syrup bourbon barrel aged to caramel apple reminiscence, this year’s lineup is full of delicious treats!
* Pickups do not start until Black Friday, Nov. 27th
As many of you have already guessed, we’ll be holding our annual release of Goose Island’s Bourbon County lineup online this year. We love the idea of folks lining up, but we couldn’t think of a practical way to release these beers while keeping all of you and our staff safe.
After much debate, we felt the best way to host our release was through Oznr (formerly CraftCellr). You may already be familiar with the app because we’ve used their service during our cellar sales earlier this year. We want to ensure a smooth, easy, and painless process when purchasing Bourbon County from The Open Bottle this year, and we feel confident Oznr is the best service on the market.
We are allowing 2 days for pickup – Friday, November 27th & Saturday, November 28th. We are open 11am to 8pm daily. Your pickup day will be determined by which set you purchase. We have a limited amount of each set, so there will be a limit of one set per person.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are proxies allowed?
Yes! We will allow proxies to pickup, but your proxy’s exact name must be on your order for us to release it. You will be able to add your proxy’s information after your purchase is completed.
Proxies do not need to have the Oznr app installed. After you purchase, you will be able to enter your proxy’s information including their full name and email address. They will then be sent an email with a specific link they will need to open when picking up. This link will claim the single order for the original purchaser and the proxy.
Can I purchase additional bottles?
We will have additional 16.9oz bottles of Original Stout, Special #4, and Caramella Ale available as add-ons to your set purchase. We may impose limits for these add-on bottles.
How will pickup work?
Your pickup day will be determined by which set you purchase. Pickups are allowed in-store and curbside. Masks are required to enter the store. Please arrive with your ID and the Oznr app ready on your mobile phone. We will ask you to hit CLAIM on the app after you receive your order. We are open 11am to 8pm daily.
What’s the best way to ensure I get some?
Download the Oznr app, create an account if you haven’t already, and save your credit card details ahead of time.
How can I save my credit card details?
To save you credit card info on the mobile app:
add an available offer from any brewery to your cart > view cart > add your card info
