Goose Island Vanilla Rye Bourbon County This Year

Goose Island Brewing (Chicago, IL ) preparing for the 2014 round of Bourbon County offerings. This year will see the re-release of one offering (or, at least a bit of a rendition of) a highly touted Bourbon County edition, Bourbon County Vanilla Rye.

It was 2010 when Goose Island released Bourbon County Vanilla. While that edition featured the base imperial stout, aged in Heaven Hill barrels with vanilla beans, this coming edition features the use of rye whiskey barrels. Two pounds of Mexican vanilla beans are in each barrel, sourced from four different distilleries.

The full Bourbon County line will include:


Bourbon County Brand Stout

Proprietor’s Reserve


Typically, the brewery releases these offerings on Black Friday. To save you some time, that’s November 28th, 2014

More to follow closer to release date…
