Taste some very rare Goose Island Beers:

2014 Goose Island Vanilla Rye Bourbon County Stout
"First brewed for the legendary festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer in Chicago, drinkers enjoyed this Bourbon County Variant so much we bottled it the next year (2010). People flocked to stores to get their hands on a bottle and have this one of a kind barrel aged stout. Over the past few years we have heard our fans express their love for this version and we are extremely proud to bring it back in 2014. This years version features a little twist of aging the stout in Rye Whiskey Barrels with a mix of Mexican and Madagascar vanilla beans!
Rated 100/100 RateBeer

This beer was not sold outside of Chicago 
                  - rare treat for us to get some to taste and sell
Goose Island Grand Prestige
Grand Prestige is a classic recipe from our friends at Hertog Jan in the Netherlands. We brewed this beer to their specifications here in Chicago, but we added a new depth to the flavor by barrel aging it in a combination of first and second use bourbon barrels.

"Grand Prestige is the crown jewel of our brewery. I am proud that we brew such a nice beer in our brewery. The choice of raw materials, the taste that our yeast produces and the craftsmanship of the brewers make this beer very special. The taste is a varied palette of roasted malt, a hint of caramel, spicy and full-bodied and in the end you taste a pleasant bitterness with a bunch of sweet. The aroma is deliciously fruity. The complexity of the taste and the warmth of the alcohol gives me a sense of wealth and rest. Duke Jan Grand Prestige is one of the few beers that can be ripened longer. From two years after bottling, the beer evolves to a portable, complex flavor and flavor. Nowadays there are countless bottles in the basement under the brewery in Arcen." - Hertog Jan Brewery
