While Goose Island Beer Co. is perhaps best known for its Bourbon County Brand Stout and its variants, the brewery does produce other stouts as well.
One of those stouts will be Goose Island Islay, a imperial stout aged for 17 months in scotch barrels. The new stout is part of the Chicago, Ill.-based brewery’s Barrel House Series, which takes “time, patience and passion” to produce “wood-aged beers.”
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Goose Island Islay will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles and is scheduled to be released sometime in 2018. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
