In previous years Goose Island would invite the media to the Goose Island Barrel Warehouse on the west side of Chicago, where they would taste through all of the variants of Bourbon County. Obviously this year, things looked different. Instead of meeting in person, they sent out tasting kits and did a virtual tasting over Zoom with Goose Island President Todd Ahsmann, Brewmaster Keith Gabbett, R&D Manager Mike Siegel and Senior Brand Manager Mike Smith. While the setting was different, the beers were still the star of the show, and this year they absolutely did not disappoint.

The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and the holiday season is here. This is a season filled with office holiday parties, family get togethers, Christmas themed bars or cold nights in binging Netflix. But, this is also the season of some of our favorite styles of beer and we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites.
Bourbon County season is finally here and this years lineup is shaping up to be one for the books. With Prop Day and Black Friday fast approaching we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to this year’s Bourbon County lineup. Every year’s Bourbon County release seems to be more ambitious than the previous, with this year being no exception. Whether you are a barrel aged purist or someone looking for unique flavor variants, this year’s release truly has something for everybody.

When White Sox fans visit Guaranteed Rate Field this season, they’ll be hard-pressed to miss the gigantic Goose tap marker sitting atop the right field bleachers. As part of a new marketing agreement between the White Sox and Goose Island, the section will now be known as “The Goose Island,” literally surrounded by cascading water and directly above the Goose Island Craft Kave. TJ Annerino, Director of Experiential Marketing for Goose Island, was part of the driving force behind the project.
“I wanted to do something eye-catching, something that would get the chatter going,” says Annerino, who has been working at Goose for about six years. Drawing inspiration from notable stadium build-outs in Arizona (pools), Milwaukee (slide), and Kansas City (fountains), Goose Island and the White Sox collaborated to come up with The Goose Island.
