    Single barrel bourbons are placed in the rackhouse based on the flavor profile that particular brand is trying to achieve.

    I didn't think the Baudonia was as good as the regular BCS. Less viscous IMO.

    Another place that has it: $14/glass at GT Oyster. Personally, I'd rather have the $10 PVW10 or $15 PVW15

    EDIT:

    There's a place in the near north 'burbs that's selling 12 oz pours of this for only $6 (a fricken steal!). PM me for details.

    Had 5 glasses of this yesterday LOL.... . . .. .Needless to say....I like it.

    It differed from regular BCBS enough to qualify as a variant...But not too much...Which is good, I LOVE BCBS.

    I had it at GT Fish & Oyster as well as one other, unmentioned, spot with much better prices.

    I'm guessing Beer Bistro? No doubt Baudoinia lasts longer when bars spell it as Baudoina on beermenus!

    I'm surprised there aren't stores in DeKalb selling sixth barrels.

    ???? I don't think Dekalb has ever had BCBS on tap....But that would be BALLERSTOUT if we did :D

    Yes, it was BB. I believe only the one location has it.
    First time there.....I actually liked the space, layout, surroundings, etc.....Only problem was their was only ONE bartender working, and she seemed like she had too much to do, resulting in less than stellar service.

    Quite the opposite from GT, where they had about 5 bartenders (working a bar that could hold about 10 ppl max)

    At both spots, I was the only one drinking the fungus beer.....I would bet my money that it stays around for a while.
    I'm assuming people just don't know what it is......

    Is there any particular reason why Goose Island doesn't label there BCBS taps with a Bourbon County logo ?????
    Seems like it would be something they would like the market?

    GI has no control over how bars label their taps.

    Wait, what???

    I'm talking about the tap handles.
    Why don't they put "bourbon county" on the tap handle anywhere?? It just says Goose Island Baudoinia on their silver goose tap handle.
    AFAIK, the silver gooses are reserved for more exclusive, limited releases....So those that know that, should know everytime they see one that its something more special from goose.

    Or when they aren't even on beermenus, and spell it Baudoninia on their PDF draft menu.

    Had this Saturday night at Happ Inn in Northfield. $8, so not so bad. This was a great beer, but not for me. I don't like bourbon, but wanted to taste this to see what BCS and the viariants were like. I will say that I can see why everybody loves it. Complex, smooth, very interesting and if you like bourbon, you won't be dissapointed. It an extremely well crafted beer. Glad I had the chance to try it, now I will leave the rest for you. Very happy with my decision to trade my BCS that I purchaed this year for some Beat 5 and FFaC.

    Exactly. I know where you're talking about. I actually mentioned the misspelling to my waitress, she didn't give $hit.

    My local source for Baudoinia upped their price today from $6 to $8 for a 12 oz pour. Still a good price, glad I went back tonight for some more.

    My local Tap House Grill is advertising a flight of Fulton & Wood beers tomorrow night -- but Baudonia isn't listed as one of them! (They're doing En Passant, Black Mission, Casimir and Gran Gas.) Hoping Baudonia might be a special surprise guest or something....

    Is the only difference between this and regular bcs the barrel treatment? I had it last night and I thought it was amazing, better than regular bcs for me, very similar but richer and much more chocolate

    I'll pile on too. Had it at Tap House Grill last night. 6.50-10oz. This beer is outstanding, I liked it as much and maybe more than BCBS.

    I love how Goose Island Clybourn always seems to have the highest prices for Goose Island products. I understand that they are 'just another bar' when it comes to these types of tappings, but charging $12 for 10 oz. just seems a bit ridiculous compared to the majority of other places who have tapped this variant.

    Flowing nicely at brewpub and also a solid BA red saison with wild yeast....that's a mouthful

    I refuse to pay that price at the brewery when you can get it at ridiculously better rates elsewhere ($7 for a 14oz pour at Beer Bistro!), but that BA Saison was pretty great.

    So is this still pouring anywhere in the city?

    Grohnke Sep 15, 2009 Illinois

    yea Devlin, or Deviln? that was a tasty brew. I was able to have a pour saturday afternoon, but less than a couple hours late it kicked. Sad day for all

    oh and the new duck terrine. F'n fabulous. It took a while for me to figure out how to eat the damn thing, but once i got it right, holy smokes. top notch.

    I've still got 2 1/6s of Baudoinia and 1 1/6 Night Stalker on tap at The Happ Inn in Northfield, after Night Stalker I have a Big John to tap, then a few BCBS. If anyone is in the north suburbs looking for these, just stop on by.
