Although many in the craft beer community, dismiss Goose Island (now owned by AB InBev) as no longer being ‘craft beer,’ their annual Bourbon County Brand release can still generate a great deal of buzz. And for that reason alone, we thought you might want to know what they’ve got planned for this year.

According to a post on Goose Island’s website, the Chicago-based brewery will be releasing a total of seven different variations of the barrel-aged brand this year.

  • Bourbon County Brand Stout 2017 — An Imperial Stout aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels
  • Bourbon County Brand Stout Reserve 2017 — An Imperial Stout aged in freshly 11-year-old Knob Creek bourbon barrels
  • Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout 2017 — Goose Island’ Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels: one using with Black Cat Espresso coffee from Intelligentsia Coffee in Chicago
  • Proprietor’s Bourbon County Brand Stout 2017 — The Holy Grail for many, this year’s Imperial Stout is aged in bourbon barrels with bananas, roasted almonds and cassia bark
  • Bourbon County Brand Northwoods Stout 2017 — An Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels with blueberry juice and almond extract added
  • Bourbon County Brand Barleywine Ale 2017 — Goose Island’s Barleywine aged in fresh bourbon barrels
