Bourbon County Stout 2020

Back in 1992, Chicagoans were the first drinkers to give a dark, viscous imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels a try. That beer, of course, is Bourbon County Stout.

Released in small batches each year, Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout is now consistently rated one of the best beers in the world. We can't think of another annual beer release that generates quite as much excitement around the world as this one does.

This year's Bourbon County Stout is aged in a mix of bourbon barrels from a variety of whiskey distilleries. Barrel-aged for a year to develop the complexity that only time can provide, Bourbon County Stout boasts a unique blend of flavors such as fudge, vanilla and caramel — topped off with a rich, complex mouthfeel.
