This is a great deal for you large format drinkers
I just discovered Goose Island and Founders last weekend. Sampled like 8 different beers at the Goose Island Brewpub. The Nut Brown Ale, Green Line, Honkers Ale (English Bitter), 312 Urban Wheat, Matilda (Belgian Pale) were all really really good. As far as Founders, well your life is not complete until you've had their Breakfast Stout.
Just picked up some Founders Breakfast Stout and Devil Dancer (hooray for $25 4-packs!), Captain Lawrence Pumpkin Ale and Sam Octoberfest. Ready for a busy Saturday of couch, college football and beer.

Were you in Chicago or do they have a goose island pub locally? I'm a big fan of Honkers and Matilda but pere Jacques is the tits.
I'm a huge fan of Golden Monkey (still have one left over from a case in the fridge)... But any time I have more than two, I regret it later on.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
That looks awesome. How hard was it to do? How long did it take how much did it cost? How can I get me some titanschlager?
I was in Chicago in Wrigleyville. I was deciding between Matilda and Pere Jacques for my last beer before leaving and went with Matilda
+1 for Golden Monkey. Can't walk into Whole Foods without grabbing some.
Basement rehab is amost done including kegerator with two taps. Norm's in Vienna can order just about any keg available. Think I'll have Two Hearted on one tap at all times. Like some of the other ideas in this thread.
whoa whoa whoa, $25 for a 4 pack of Breakfast Stout?
i can't fully commit to the kegerator idea. i know that sounds retarded, but i like to switch it up to often. for example Two Hearted is amazing, but i feel like i'd get bored
That's why we recently switched to getting 1/6 barrels... The 1/2 barrels were taking too damn long to finish, unless we had a party or something.
Plus, even if you don't have a two tap setup, any kegerator is big enough to store 2 1/6 barrel kegs. So, you could potentially switch back and forth.
That's what I'm going to do, get the 1/6 barrels. And I will get tired of Two Hearted, but it's going to take awhile.
I tried the Yenungling Octoberfest while out watching football the other night and didn't like it at all. Sam is much better.
Pere Jacques is delicious, and if you ever see bourbon county stout, don't pass it up.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
My favorite beer. A shame I couldn't ever get my hands on the rare
I had the patience to age a few bottles, I think the last one was somewhere between a year and 18 months and it was sublime

"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
still have never had Bourbon County in any form. i tried so hard last year and got the heisman everywere. and that includes literally running out of work when one place tweeted it had come in and still getting shorted.
last time i was at Perfect Pour i didnt see the bottle of Rare upon the shelf for $100 that has been there for the past 6 months. some poor sap dropped a lot of coin
Agree on BCS but that shit is expensive.
Last winter I found a 2009 bottle in the back of the fridge. It was perfect.
I think I'm headed to Chicago next month. Definitely hitting a goose island tour. I'll see what I can do to help you out. Are you local?
damn, now that I think about it I don't think I got any last year either. Its really become hard to find lately while they try and mass-produce I guess. The joys of selling Goose Island to Budweiser and ramping up distribution of the 312
I have a BCS and a mikkeller Christmas ale that will hit 2 years on Christmas. One will get opened the days the O's clinch. The other at the 1st pitch of the first post-season game.
Goose Island was bought by AnheuserBusch/InBev back in March 2011, they're distributing much more widely now.
I also enjoy most anything Founders puts out. Did you by chance get a Kentucky or Canadian Breakfast stout? Hard to find, but very delicious.
Also, their Backwoods Bastard is one of my favorite bourbon barrel aged ales, and a little easier to get your hands on.
yep, Silver Spring. you are a good man. BCS is seasonal though, so I'm not sure it will be there? but i'll cut my face (or provide whatever other compensation you desire) for the chance to get my hands on a bottle.
KBS is amazing. CBS is a riddle wrapped inside an enigma.
i've heard rumors that Goose Island expanded their barrel area or whatever to increase BCS production. true? false?
KBS is fantastic but incredibly overhyped. Founders is finally upping production for next year so it won't be an all-out fight to the finish for a bottle or two like this year. I have a bottle of 2011 and 2012 that I'm aging in my cellar (err, closet). I was slightly disappointed with CBS - and that doesn't even include the fact that I paid $43 for a bomber at Churchkey for it. On the other hand, Frangelic Mountain Brown is a terrific brew
Goose Island BCS is just as good - I was fortunate to have BCS Vanilla which might have been one of the best beers I have ever come across.
Oh, and I just bought three bombers of Pumking at Village Pump. They just got a shipment today FYI.
Frisco had the Goose Island BCS on tap not too long ago, though it was gone before I got to try it. :/
