They will have this on tap at Whirlyball in Vernon Hills on Friday the 14th.
Looks like Monk's is supposed to have it tonight as well
It's delicious. Like a fudgier BCS.
My first pour was not at all what I expected. Super hoppy and a lot like night stalker, had a second and it seems like the first was a product of the lines not being cleared. Must have had an IPA on previous. When not mixed with random IPA this is a great beer.
At Fischman on the 13th
I called the clybourn pub thinking they would have it tonight, but they will not. Does anyone know where it might be tonight or Wednesday?
suburban folks.... I saw it coming one of the wednesdays to tribes.
Anybody going to Wild Monk in LaGrange? There is a GI tap takeover Wednesday and Baudoinia will be there.
The release party is tonight. I don't know of any public tappings.
I'll be there.
Party eh? Where is it and how can I crash it? Seems like an industry thing. Vav, can I borrow your identity for the night?
It might work, since i've decided to take the evening off from beer stuff and just sit in my underwear playing Hardcore Team Deathmatch on Black Ops II.
I've said too much already. But it's not like I'll be there either. It's invitation-only, probably the inner circle of Chicago craft beer folks, or at least the ones close to GI. They've done one of these for each Fulton & Wood release. I imagine pics will be up on facebook this week.
Shoot, so no Baudoinia at the Clybourn pub this week?
Anyone who has this at Blues Bar, please let me know if you're sure it's Baudionia vs. standard BCS. I had it last night and it tasted like the latter, though the manager was adamant that they hadn't mixed up their kegs. Having had them side by side at Monk's, I feel confident enough to raise the question (and willing to risk the embarrassment if I'm wrong.)
I'll merk you, son.
I was excited when I saw this as I live right by Blues. My excitement deflated when I saw they priced it out at $11 for 10 oz.
Having said that I'll still check it out. I had Baudoinia last night at the Wild Monk one year anniversary party side by side with regular BCBS and they are distinctly different.
It's actually $12 for 10 oz, which I also pointed out to their beer guy. The response was "sorry it's $12". They wouldn't honor the beermenus price even after I showed it to them on my phone. I agree that Baudoinia is noticeably different. BCS has a lot of heat and a bit of astringency (I think that's the word. It kind of puckers my cheeks a bit without being sour) which is what I got last night. My pours of Baud have been more purely sweet without those two qualities.
reminds me of my friend. used to watch porn in his underwear eating cheerios.

Zing of the day!
FWIW I'm having Baudoinia right now. It tastes sweeter than what I had last night but I'm less than 100% convinced that my memory & palate are foolproof here. So I eagerly await any feedback from fellow NW burbanites.
I had it tonight with at Blues Bar, and I am almost sure it is Baudoinia. As Vav said it tastes like a fudgier BCS, and i agree. It had a smooth chocolate fudge taste that was creamier, less harsh/hot on the bourbon than regular bcs.
I agree. I'm back at Blues Bar and convinced that I'm having the same beer I had in Highwood, both of which I believe to be Baudoinia. I'm going to stubbornly refuse to change my check-ins for last night, due to my certainty at the time, but apologize to Blues Bar for the implication of false advertising based on only my gut and comparatively unrefined palate. I will say that BCS is already my favorite beer, and Baudoinia is merely a marginal improvement. (See: vanilla, rare?)
Can anyone at fischmans confirm if its still on tap or close to kicking? I have been stuck at work all day and don't get off till 11pm.
It will be on tap tonight at Whirlyball in Vernon Hills starting at 9. Look forward to meeting some BA's.
i was pretty hammered last night and wound up posting my review in a thread in some other forum, but this is a dead on description. the bartenders were dolloping vanilla ice cream into some patrons' glasses, and i was tempted to give it a shot but i didn't feel like having a third pour.
Btw, the first keg (yes, first) is STILL on tap at Blues Bar in Mt Prospect. Holy shit is it good.
I'm pretty sure bartenders (all over the place) calling it "the fungus beer" somewhat limits the appeal.
It didn't stick long enough at Wild Monk LaGrange for me to get any with my Friday lunch....
Pouring at Acre in Andersonville ($8/10oz.). It's been on since Thursday night so it's likely to kick really soon. Plenty of other big stouts/dark beers, though, if you miss out on the fungus beer. I think their BeerMenus page is still pretty accurate, despite last being updated on the 20th.
So Heaven on Seven in Naperville has it on tap at $7 a glass. Pretty good price. But when we said we wanted 5 glasses, the waiter said how about a pitcher for $25? $25 for a freakin pitcher of a bourbon county variant. Incredible. I recommend getting over there and getting some.
pour it in to a growler and burn out of there!
brixies friday...plus other awesome bier
Did you then proceed to order 5 pitchers? That beer is amazing.
Had it last night at blues bar $12 for 10oz pour. Amazingly still on tap after two weeks. Definitely fudge flavor and less boozy than normal BCBS.
I also had it yesterday at Blues Bar. little pricey at $12 for a 10oz pour, but absolutely worth it.
As mentioned above, it does have a fudgier flavor than the BCS and slightly milder/smoother Bourbon taste to it.
is this in mount prospect, or the blue bar in river north, downtown chicago on clark?
