Goose Island Unveils 2022 Bourbon County Stout Lineup – NBC Chicago

Chicago-area beer lovers eagerly await Goose Island’s annual Bourbon County Stout release, and this year’s list of variants includes 30e anniversary infusion and many other unique flavors.

The company announced the 2022 lineup on Monday, including a slew of new variations that incorporate ingredients like figs and biscotti into the beers’ signature flavor profile.

The beers will be released on Black Friday.

According to a press release, this year’s variants will include the traditional Bourbon County Stout, aged and blended in barrels from several distilleries, including Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill and Four Roses.

The company’s Coffee Stout variant will also make a return, as will its English-style Barleywine Reserve variant, returning to the fold for the first time since 2018.

New variations this year include Biscotti Stout, inspired by the classic Italian dessert, and Sir Isaac’s Stout, inspired by fig crackers and graham crackers.

More than five tons of Black Mission figs were used in the creation of this beer, according to the company.

A special 30e anniversary stout will also be released, with a limited number of casks created for the occasion.

More information about the variants can be found on the company’s website. The beers will be released on November 25.
