Details for three more possible variants of this year’s Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout have come to light, including the famous base stout.

Those three new variants include:

00002518-2020 Bourbon County Birthday Brand Stout 1xSixth Bbl

  • A 500ml bottle label and a keg label for Bourbon County Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2020, an imperial stout aged in barrels that previously held 2019 Old Forester Birthday bourbon

  • A 500ml bottle label for Bourbon County Stout 2020, an imperial stout brewed with two-row, Black, Caramel, Chocolate, Munich 10 and Roasted Barley malts and is hopped with Millennium hops before being aged in bourbon barrels

  • A keg label for Bourbon County Old Forester President’s Choice Bourbon 2020, an imperial stout aged in barrels that previously held 2019 Old Forester Birthday bourbon.

The new beer is a variant of the Chicago-based brewery’s Bourbon County Brand Stout 2020, an imperial stout brewed with two-row, Black, Caramel, Chocolate, Munich 10 and Roasted Barley malts and is hopped with Millennium hops before being aged in bourbon barrels.

Although release details for this year’s releases have not been confirmed, all but two of the eight bottled BCBS variants last year were available nationwide starting on the day after Thanksgiving, which fell on Nov. 29. Those exceptions were Proprietor’s Bourbon County Brand Stout, which has always been exclusively available in Chicago since its debut in 2013; and Bourbon County Double Barrel Stout 2019, which the brewery indicated would not have “a traditional retail release” that included an online lottery.

In addition, it should be noted that Goose Island filed labels for three additional variants in kegs last year that were never released to the public:

An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
