Goose Island Night Stalker....$8.99 / 22oz bottle
First come first served at the Forsyth Store -- 1 bottle per person.
Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout....$17.99 -- 1 per person
The site crashed like when Founders CBS was posted. I know it is frustrating, but everyone experienced the same thing, so it was still as fair as possible for those that got a bottle. Because about twice as many people got through than bottles we have.
I had a number of people ask how the rare beers are sold here at The Wine and Cheese Place. Tomorrow when it arrives, it will be "fastest finger". I will post the wine is available here on the blog, also on twitter and facebook. There will be a link to try to reserve it online. Just getting an order in is no guarantee, you will need to wait for a confirmation which could take a few minutes.
It is important that you set up an account on our website - click here to set one up.
Because when I post the link, you will not have time to set up an account and be able to get the beer. Also make sure you have the site up and already logged into the account. It will only take about a minute to sell out.
Everyday Goose Island smells the wonderful coffee roasting next to our brewery at Chicago's Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea. This world class roaster puts the same passion and skill into their coffee as Goose Island does with its beer. This excellent stout is made with a different coffee from our friends next door each year. With the change in coffee comes a change in the flavor profile, making each release truly unique from the previous years.
