Goose Island will unveil their Rare Bourbon County Stout at all retail locations on November 30th, with the exception of one lucky store. That fortunate store is Binnys in Lincoln Park, which will have bottles of Rare Bourbon County available for purchase on Black Friday, November 26th. There will not be an unlimited supply, so you might want to think about getting to the store early; the doors open at 9am.
Rare Bourbon County will never be brewed again. It was aged for two years in Pappy Van Winkle barrels, which are used to age the hundred dollars and above Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon. These are the finest barrels Goose Island has ever used to age a beer in.
In addition to the Rare Bourbon County, Binnys in Lincoln Park will have some special beers from Goose Island not usually on retail shelves on hand for purchase. Will we see you at Binnys in Lincoln Park on Black Friday?
