Goose Island Bourbon County Stout launch date announced

Goose Island Beer Company will release its 2019 Bourbon County Stout (15.2% abv) variant on Friday 29 November.

The beer will be available to purchase from The Goose Island Brewpub, London from 08:30am and this year’s BCS has been aged in 4+ year-old Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey barrels.

Each year the Goose Island Chicago Brewery receives a different mix of bourbon barrels directly from distillery partners, which are then filled with its stout.

Andrew Walton, head brewer at The Goose Island Brewpub said:

“The first time I tasted Bourbon County was straight out of the barrel touring the Goose Island Barrel Warehouse as a brewing student.

“Each year brings subtle nuances and cracking open that first bottle is as exciting as it gets for a beer fan.”

A Q&A session with Walton plus a BCS-themed breakfast will be held on the day of the launch.
