1800 W Fulton
Bourbon County Proprietor's
Back in 1992, Chicagoans were the first drinkers to give a dark, viscous imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels a try. In a time when craft beer was in its infancy, it was Chicagoans that welcomed this innovative barrel-aged stout with open minds and eager palates. That stout of course, is Bourbon County Brand Stout, the first beer aged in a Bourbon barrel. Since 2013, as a thank you to our adventurous and loyal Chicago fans, Bourbon County Stout Proprietor’s is released in Chicago one day only – Black Friday. That is, until now. Welcome to Prop Day.
Bourbon County Stout, Music, Food Trucks, and Celebration.
Prop Day
Come celebrate the release of Bourbon County Stout a few weeks early. Join us outside of our brewery for a street market and a bottle release. We’ll be shutting down the street outside of 1800 W Fulton on November 11th for the ultimate Bourbon County Celebration. Local Chicago companies will be sampling their unique goods made with or inspired by Bourbon County Stout. Music, Food Trucks, and plenty of beer will keep you warm on what is likely going to be a brisk November day. There may even be some surprises from the past along the way… ;) Tickets are $30 and are awarded via a lottery drawing.

  • Option to purchase two bottles of Proprietor’s Bourbon County Stout and one bottle of Bourbon County Vanilla Stout.
