Goose Island Bourbon County Proprietor's 2016
Aged in bourbon barrels that also previously stored maple syrup, this special version of Goose Island’s beloved barrel-aged stout combines the pancake topping with chipotle peppers and cocoa nibs for a piquant character reminiscent of a creamy, sticky mole.

Tusk & Grain Tequila & Bourbon Barrel Aged Coffee Porter
Tequila is pungent but it can enhance a beer if used sparingly; here it heightens green pistachio notes in the coffee and merges with spicy cinnamon and molasses. Combined with the beer’s inherent cocoa character, each sip tastes like a great cup of Mexican hot chocolate.
