Yeah, Mt. Prospect. And not that it helps you out, but I spoke with the manager and the next ones on tap once Baudoinia are:
Night Stalker (not sure which will be 1st)
and then BCBS
Glad I live 5 minutes away :-)
Had it last night @Brixies. It's nice.
That event last night was like a less-sweaty FOBAB, darn near....
I saw that tap list they posted on Facebook.....unreal.
BallyDoyles in Bloomingdale has it on tap had some this weekend!! MmmmMmmm
Fischman is doing a complimentary Baudoinia Toast at midnight tonight. Also on tap will be Big John and Bourbon County Stout '12. Plus BCS Coffee, CW BBS '11 & '12 and CW BBBW '11 & '12. No Cover. http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=d1e2fd402e19748a05a50fcae&id=5d1c142b06
I had a glass at GT Fish &Oyster downtown. It was great!
i conveniently work down the street. inconveniently, it will tap before i'm back Wednesday afternoon.
Actually the ONLY bourbon distillery that rotates barrels is Maker's Mark. And barrels on lower racks evaporate at a lower/slower rate compared to higher floors in a warehouse.
Just went on at Small Bar Division.
Source? I find that interesting.
It's at Jerry's in Andersonville too.
It is actually true. They do rotate their barrels and are the only major company to do so.
Just a quick Google search will prove it.
Appreciate the links... Maker's say they hand rotate barrels... Im still not convinced. Maybe distilleries think they can mimmick this by blending after, I'm going to have to dig deeper tomorrow on my computer.
It was still on tap at GT as of last night!
i forgot about this. and thanks. looks like i'm taking a detour before i head home.
thanks again. just had my glass. a fine damn beer. based on the location, i'd be shocked if it tapped in the next 2 weeks.
11 bucks sir.
Yikes. $7 at Small Bar. You should stop there. I went Thursday and no one was drinking it.
Had it at FOBAB... its okay... nothing to go apeshit over.
Problem with FoBAB (and not really a problem but...) is that its hard to really appreciate anything as most of us are enjoying our 2oz and then rinsing / repeating with another great beer. Everything tastes really good (and if something stands out as amazing or bad you really know it is).
I have enjoyed Baudonia in a normal bar setting much more than I enjoyed the low storage barrel at FoBAB due to my ability to appreciate it and pick out nuances.
it was the 2nd beer i tried.... and I had plenty of it since the guy was offereing free pours. And I thought it was better than the other 3 variants fwiw. It is as good maybe slightly worse than reg bcbs.
I have enjoyed it much more now than at FoBAB as well. Setting/surroundings definitely impact enjoyment. Is it the greatest beer ever? No, but it is a damn fine one and anyone who enjoys BCS will prolly love this one.
They almost all blend to their flavor profile. Rotating is too labor intensive and reduces capacity.
Small bar kicked this afternoon
now you to tell me. wasn't bad though, i didn't have to go out of the way since i just had to 2 blocks and considering river north prices.
I also paid $12 at Blues Bar in Mt Prospect. Expensive, but I loved it!
RATS. Was thinking about swinging by there tonight...
Apeshit? I don't know but I thought the 2 glasses I had were fantastic! Would most definitely make it a point to try it again if I had the chance!
$8 for 10 oz pour at bally doyles downers grove... enjoying one now
$10 for 9oz @ Bangers & Lace, but at least I got to try it. DAMMNED good too, IMO.
Why is this not on tap at GI?
Goose island clybourn is seperate from the brewery. While obviously very connected, the brewing that goes on at goose island clybourn is just kept there. The Fulton and wood series comes out of the main brewery and gets distributed to various bars throughout Chicago. So in this case, goose island clybourn is just another bar that can get that beer.
pretty much this. even with as much bcbs as chicago has, i can only remember clybourn tapping it two or three times. that said, there's still a lot of amazing stuff that comes out of clybourn, most noteworthy (to me) was 'elijah', a doppelbock aged in elijah craig (not sure if it was 12 or 18) barrels that they had on tap on black friday. so, so good.
Elijah was mindblowingly good. My favorite of any GI Clybourn brews easily
I understand the concept. So the single barrel varieties from distilleries must be placed on above levels, so they don't have to work around them? Which would definitely change the oak profile in a bourbon, due to different temp changes...?
