Goose Island Bourbon County Stout


When it came time to brew its 1,000th batch of beer 22 years ago, the Goose Island brewpub on Clybourn Avenue (Chicago) wanted to do something special. So then-brewmaster Greg Hall made the darkest, booziest stout he could and let it sit in a bourbon barrel — a relatively rare practice at the time. He named the beer Bourbon County Stout and nervously trotted it out for his customers.

There is now a range of brews available from Bourbon County Stout and it makes for a smooth companion to a fireside winter evening.
