Can we get a peak @ the label???
I wasn't necessarily sticking to actual Jim Beam-branded bourbon, but the other brands produced by the company as well. But even then, Knob Creek is nine years old and I don't think they sell anything older than that.
Of course, you could take a Beam white label barrel and let it sit around for 26 years after dumping and call it a 30-year-old barrel....
bourbon county maple
Eclipse is still a barrel aged Totality, no matter which distillery / brand the barrel came from. Any Rare could be considered that say if A) aged for 2 years B) using barrels over 20 years for example. No need to argue over the name of a great beer though!
The idea with Rare was the time that the beer was aged in the barrels...not the brand of barrels.
When does the BCBS come out as far as releasing dates?
Uhh, that's exactly opposite of the truth. The focus was on the barrels used. The box even says so: "Extremely rare, the barrels were filled with Bourbon County Stout."
that's what someone on here said
If its like last year all big liquor stores. Go to springhurst liquor barn, great selection and they'll have it.[/quote]
awesome i was thinking of going to party source too pretty sure they will get it
Yes Colorado is confirmed definitely. I am already planning events with the local GI rep.
My local rep has as well as another BA's post including his correspondence with the brewery.
Stone Mint Chocolate Stout
It was a solid beer, but I had problems really finding any of it last year, so it may be a bit tough for sure to find, now.
Ken Schmidt / Iron Fist / Stone Mint Chocolate Imperial Stout
Was really tasty. Was released a few years ago so the only way to get it now is through trade I believe. I wouldn't mind finding a couple more.
I have yet to try a mint julep yet. Seems like I need to make a trip to Kentucky.

actually party source is pretty weak, they probably won't have it.
The labels for the barleywine and the coffee we've seen leaked are both 12 oz., right? So if above speculation is correct, "Backyard Bramble" will be the only bomber this year? Interesting.
Admittedly this is all speculation, but I bet it will just be the variants released on Black Friday. That's the way it went last year and I'm betting it will be the same this year. Waiting until late November would mean a lot of product sitting in storage and none on store shelves for a very large chunk of the fall "stout season."
So why is Goose telling people regular BCBS will be released on Black Friday?
The variants come out after regular. Do people have short term memory loss?
news from a buddy that spoke to a Goose Head Brewmaster tonight...
Backyard Rye (mulberry, boysenberry and marionberry)
also a new sister fruit lambic in the near term...
They just got in 200+ barrels of Pappy avg age 31yrs for Rare...brewing soon and will come out in 2 years.
Interesting that you mention mint and bourbon, as that was a major note I got in 4 Roses Small Batch.
There is no 31 year PVW
Did you read "avg age"?
At least hopefully on tap somewhere
Your buddy is a liar.
It would be strange for them to wait until black friday. I remember getting bourbon county in Michigan the first week of October last year.
I had it shipped to me in California and on my doorstep October 5. Bet it's out soon.
I am assuming the "fruit beer" is their peach sour coming out in October.
Just because it's news-worthy doesn't mean it's true; if that were the case Bigfoot would have been found by now
Brewers are required to submit their labels for review approval. This is a public process, and labels are released to the public. The label for Coffee is publicly available, it is stamped "2013" on it and it says the contents in the package are 12 fluid ounces. Translation: Goose Island is making Coffee, it is going to be released in 2013, it is going to be available in 12oz bottles, and therefore it is highly likely it will be sold in four-packs.
Hope that clears things up. Here is the officially , legally confirmed label for Bourbon County Coffee:
Any chance the "fruit beer" is just Matilda Lambicus that was release or possibly one of the three sisters?
They have two new beers with label approval, one of which was slated to come out last year (Gillian). The other is indeed Halia, the peach sour.
Gillian was formerly known as Scully.
And Halia was formerly know as Mae.
And I don't live in Illinois anymore, so I likely won't see either. Damn you all.....
See my previous post. The new fruit beers are Gillian (formerly Scully) and Halia (formerly Mae).
Yeah? Do you know anything I don't?
There's still realistic speculation about coconut or coconut rye. Why do people keep asking the same questions over and over, without reading the entire thread? What is this? A Ron Paul Fan Forum?
Just read the pertinent comments on preceding pages before passing judgment of this sort. I found several comments--especially the repeating themes--compelling enough. YMMV
Bigfoot has been found!
Nothing here is incorrect. Some of it I've been posting about for over a month.
Bourbon County Genuine Draft (regular BCS) I'm told won't come out for awhile. Despite the fact they have already bottled some and it tastes fantastic.
When I can buy this stuff in bottles in Los Angeles again (as I used to be able to in years passed, but not since 2009, I believe), then I'll get excited. With Bud making a huge effort to push this beer out here this year (multiple events all over town in some of the craftiest craft beer bars we have), I'm hopeful BCS will once again grace our shelves...
If I had to guess, a lot of retailers will break up the 4 packs and sell them as 1 or 2 bottle limits
Oh yeah, almost certainly. Will be nice for people who aren't alcoholics though.
If it means more people get to buy some then I'm all for it. I feel like coffee was easy to get last year in bombers anyway
