    Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Takeover
    Binny's South Loop Tasting Room Event
    Thursday, March 7th, 5-8pm
    [​IMG]Our favorite event of the year returns! That's right, its time for a Goose Island Bourbon County Stout tap takeover at the Binny's South Loop Tasting Room. Join us as we tap Bourbon County Stouts from 2009 through 2012 and several of the most popular variants including 2010 Bourbon County Vanilla and 2012 Bourbon County Cherry Rye. Space is extremely limited and reservations are required. $10 entry fee buys your first pour of 2012 Bourbon County Stout.
    Call 312-768-4400 to reserve your spot.


    Thought I would share this with everyone. I already RSVP'd myself.
  2. I'm in as well, was able to reserve a spot for two. Fingers crossed for a bottle sale ;)

    Just a reminder for you tap vultures, Binny's often has leftovers the next day if you got shut out. That said, I doubt Vanilla and Cherry Rye will last long.

    I agree if they are making it extremely limited as they say I don't see 6-7 or however many kegs they have all kicking. I'm sure 2012 if anything will be left.

    Was there last night getting Sucaba and they said no raffle or sales, just a good old fashioned sausage fest with 6-7 stouts on draft.....I got in with the wife so at least I'll be bringing the sausage ratio down a peg!

    wish I knew about this earlier...no spots left :( also, I have never called a business to have an old lady answer and just say "Hello" when they picked up...so unprofessional

    Not sure what I almost excited about. Vanilla is up there, but i haven't had any pre '11 BCS on tap and may never see them on tap again.... This is going to be awesome.

    Anyone have any open spots let me know... I'm interested.
  23. Can some one post the tap list or link to it. Or do I have to join twitter to see it?

    Just kidding, the tap list is in the picture and I am just an idiot.

    Cheers

    Pumped to try all of them...but having to be able to drive home, I think I'll probably only get to a couple. Either way, definitely looking forward to it!

    With that tap list I don't think they will be pouring a whole lot of Big John. Can't wait to try the 2008 on draft.

    is that an 8? I thought it was a 9.

    jdhende Savant (345) Illinois Sep 27, 2010

    I read it as an 8.....but my eyes have certainly lied to me before especially when lots of alcohol has been involved.

    if it isn't one of this years batches, then i highly recommend it. it aged quite well.

    Seriously, when Brett Porter mentioned that this would be one of the best bourbon barrel aged assembling of GI, I knew we were in for a treat, but WOW, bottles of King Henry, Bramble and Rare just being poured to sample was amazing along with the great selection on the taps. Props to both GI and Binnys SL on a very well put on event!

    Did anyone mix their cherry and vanilla? If it works for Dr. Pepper...
