    The annual Bourbon County Brand Stout variations will be available on Black Friday!

    This years Bourbon County Coffee is made with a coffee from Honduras called La Tortuga from our friends at Intelligentsia. In addition, we will also be releasing Bourbon County Brand Cherry Rye Stout. This beer is aged in rye whiskey barrels with whole Michigan cherries normally used for Madame Rose.

    We cannot guarantee that the beers will be on shelves on Black Friday, this is dependent on wholesale delivery schedules.

  6. Of all days Black Friday, awesome.
     
  7. Do we have to wake up at 4am and trample small children to get bottles for a discounted price or can I just buy them like a civilized human?

  9. Black Friday is the first day it will be available at certain retailers, but its not guaranteed to be at your favorite retailer is what Goose Island said......just simply means that some stores will/should have it while others won't...not every store that is going to carry these beers are going to be getting it and selling it on Black Friday.

  21. If anyone snags some of these and wants some Black Tuesday, keep me in mind.
     
  22. Well since New England has yet to see any regular BCBS, I highly doubt we will see these either. :(

    All you need is a Chicago friend to trade with, lots of us under ISO. Illinois , California , and Colorado are very spoiled when it cOmes to big beer releases. I'm not counting Florida, all they have is cigar city.
     
  26. Looking forward to trying the cherry rendition.
     
  27. damnit, I want more purple drank BCS.
     
  28. For those of you that have had all of the versions which one is your favorite??? Rare, coffee, vanilla???

    Good question and I the think the answer is the obvious one, Rare. I have had it on tap when released and multiple tastings and it truly is the best. I would give regular BCBS 2nd place, coffee 3rd, bramble 4th and then vanilla. I know I know vanilla last but it was just too sweet for me. I actually traded my last vanillas for copious amounts of Firestone 15 and cool west coast brews. This is just one mans opinion!

    With all aged to current times

    FW reserve series are good but they are very widely available especially here in the midwest where there are much tastier offerings west-coasters overrate them because they haven't had the big stouts/barleywines that are coming out of the midwest these days
