Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout is a special beer. Launched just once a year with much fanfare, bottles quickly become collectors items as dedicated craft beer aficionados snap them up to cellar for up to five years - just like a fine wine. Now you can make the entire experience even more luxurious - and even more collectable - with the Bourbon County Stout Gift Box. Containing a bottle of BCS 2018 that RRPs at £20 on it’s own, as well as a limited edition Goose Island Bourbon County Stout glass, all wrapped in a specially designed collector’s edition gift box - this is THE perfect gift for people who are serious about their beers!
The beer itself: Where to start? Just getting your hands on it in the UK is an achievement, which is why we recommend you REALLY don’t hang about! If you’re lucky enough to get one, and you choose to drink it now instead of cellar it (and this is a perfect beer to cellar), then you can expect one of the most ridiculously rich and complex stouts you’ll ever taste.

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.
