Brewer’s Notes:
“I really wanted to do something special for our 1000th batch at the original brewpub. Goose Island could have thrown a party. But we did something better. We brewed a beer. A really big batch of stout-so big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born-A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla,carmel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer. It overpowers anything in the room. People have even said that it’s a great cigar beer, but I haven’t yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it.” Brewmaster Greg Hall;

Brewer’s Notes:
Aged in the third-use barrels that were once home to Kentucky bourbon and then our renowned Bourbon County Stout, this traditional English-style barleywine possesses the subtlety of flavor that only comes from a barrel that’s gone through many seasons of ritual care. The intricacies of the previous barrel denizens – oak, charcoal, hints of tobacco and vanilla, and that signature bourbon heat – are all present in this beer. Hearty and complex, Bourbon County Brand Barleywine is a titan and a timeline; a bold, flavorful journey through the craft of barrel aging.

Brewer’s Notes:
Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.

Flavour: Feels like the sound shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed. The taste is characterized by its roundness. The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter.

We’re very excited to announce our next artist, Miriam Crowe. We will be featuring her art on FullSizeRender (22)Thursday, February 18. Come in and meet the artist starting at 7 pm.
We will have Dawn with Spiritual Gifts providing Tarot readings.
Bio for Miriam Crowe
While earning a degree in Guidance and Counseling at Western Kentucky University, I discovered printmaking, and with it a new passion. After continuing my education, I spent years as a counselor and raised a family, dabbling in art the entire time. In 2014 I learned of a printmaking class being offered through the Art League of Jacksonville. I began the next week, and ever since then my passion for printmaking and the various techniques that it offers has been rising, and I have been producing work rapidly. I render peaceful but sometimes melancholy images, and I am inspired in my work by the Florida and Kentucky landscapes.

Just tapped: Duck Rabbit Milk Stout – The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery

Just tapped: Duck Rabbit Milk Stout – The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery 5.7% ABV. BA 86duck-rabbit-milk-stout
The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). Because lactose is unfermentable by brewer’s yeast, it remains in the beer. The subtle sweetness and fullness of flavor imparted by this sugar balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains that give this delicious beer its black color. All year long, Milk Stout is our number one selling beer! ABV: 5.7%
