Eeek! Release Day – 10-15

Image

Off Color has announced the offical release day of their collaboration with Miller High Life, Eeek! The release will take place on October 15th at 11am at Off Color’s bottle shop.

Eeek! is an American Wild Ale brewed using the following process. Off Color blended all of their wild acidic and funky mixed cultures together with their house lactobacillus and set them loose on base Miler High Life wort. After a month of unregulated primary fermentation, they lagered Eeek! for an additional three weeks before bottling conditioning the beer with Champagne yeast. If that doesn’t sound like something you want to drink, you’re crazy!

Offical BCS Announcement

Yesterday, Goose Island officially released this line-up for Bourbon County Brand Stout variants dropping on Black Friday. They also discussed the process they will go through to avoid the disappointing infections that plagued last years batch. This year’s beers will be flash pasteurized to eliminate infection.

The line-up will only be four beers, and will not include some of the rumored beers and we had previously shared labels of. The head brewer did not think Maple Rye Stout was ready for bottles this year. In addition there will not be two different variants of Prop as previously rumored, one in Scotch barrels and one in bourbon barrels. Disappointing, but we will still be getting four, hopefully quality, bourbon barrel-aged beers. Here is the final line-up:

* 2016 Bourbon County Stout — Aged in bourbon barrels.
* 2016 Bourbon County Stout Coffee — Brewed with Intelligentsia Flecha Roja coffee sourced from Coast Rica.
* 2016 Bourbon County Barleywine — Aged in first-use bourbon barrels.
* 2016 Bourbon County Stout Proprietor’s — Brewed with chipotle peppers and cocoa nibs before being aged in bourbon barrels that previously stored maple syrup. Chicago exclusive.
