Bourbon County Stout 2018 Launch
23 November, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 11:00 pmFree
We are privileged to welcome Goose Island back to Ghost Whale for the 2018 launch of their legendary Bourbon County Brand Stout.
There is (as always) a very limited stock of this beer and we are one of just two places in the UK that you can pick it up this year.
Why should you take the morning off work all in the name of a beer we hear you ask? Well, not only is Bourbon County Brand Stout consistently rated in the top 10 beers in the world but if you buy your BCS before midday you will….
/// be entered into a raffle to be drawn at midday to win a bottle of 2017 BCS aged in 11 Year-Old Knob Creek barrels.
/// get to have free kringle (google it) prepared by Masterchef 2011 winner/Nanban head honcho Tim Anderson using 2018 BCS in the filling. We’re told to expect maple & pecan.
/// have a free vertical tasting of BCS vintages led by the wonderful Goose Island folk.
There are also Goose Island goodie bags that are packed with great treats on a first come first served basis.
Last year queues were literally around the block with the first in line arriving from around 8:30am and we were sold out in 45 minutes! Absolute legends!
So get down early, get your BCS and have some fun.
Bottles are limited to 2 per person max. They will NOT be available online and we can not reserve any for you.
Stay warm and fed if you’re in line early, Parissi is 2 doors down from us and does great coffee and breakfast.
We open and start sales at 11am.
