We are excited to bring you another release of Goose Island’s coveted bourbon barrel aged stouts! We think you’re going to really enjoy what Goose Island is bringing to the table this year. It’s a great lineup filled with unique barrel-aged stouts featuring expressions of barrels, nostalgic flavors, and, of course, the original base stout.
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 think everyone deserves a stress-free Thanksgiving dinner with family & friends.
