    Whoa, what is that? What word does it have after "brand" (it's hard to tell from the pic)?

    Bourbon County Brand Scoop? Does it even say Goose Island on the label... or perhaps Moose Island? :wink:

    Is the title question even needed?

    Photoshopped fake. Look at the "Bourbon County". You could draw a straight line right across the letters, but they should curve with the bottle. This is a picture of another beer with the "Bourbon County" photoshopped on.

    A little Photoshoppin' (inverting and removing color, adjusting lighting and contrast) of that bad pic in the OP, and there's something there (I guess the Gov't Health Warning on that era label was on the back or side?)

    Here's a straight line - plus the first "B" and the "N" and "Y" are pretty distorted, just as they would be photographing the label on a round bottle...

    "In that era?" One thing fairly easily visible in the OP picture is "2017" near the top of the label.

    Yeah, I'm talking about the era label they copied... I mean, if you're gonna fake it, you're going to keep it looking as authentic and legal as possible except for the year ---- and "SCOOP".

    Dude, just use google images to find out if it's real (no) or fake (yes). It's not even close, a 2nd grader could tell.

    Is that a 12 oz. bottle? I thought all Bourbon County products went to a larger format.

    What I find interesting that nobody has pointed out is the "3 Sons Brewing Company" logo at the top. And the fact that it says bourbon county brand "scoop"

    Looks like something you’d find someone hawking out of a Carson on the south side, along with some ‘Ray-Bam’ shades and ‘Huey Vuitton’ purses...

    It is real. Its a blend by 3 Sons of Scooop and BCBS, they bottled it and gave it to employees/friends and family

    Well first it is sort of necessary to be able to recognize the logo. :sunglasses:

    So it was a collaborative effort with Goose Island?

    I tried to find the post on FB, but can't locate it. From what I remember they took a keg of bcbs and did a scoop treatment to it.

    As far as I know, goose was not involved.

    Well thanks some of you for making me feel like a stupid asshole. First thing I did was google search 3 sons bourbon county. Zilch. I thought it may be fake so figured someone on here had some insight if it was real.

    I’m not sure it’s trademark or copyright infringement if they weren’t selling it for profit.

    But, on a more serious note... they need to bring back the 12oz bottles!
