Goose Island 2014 Bourbon County Stout Tapping

We’re pulling a goodie out of the cellar: 2014 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, a vintage some claim is the best ever. This 13.8% ABV monster is a liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel.

How It Works

Science of The Growler


Oxygen is the mortal enemy of fresh, delicious beer. The moment beer leaves the loving confines of the keg oxidation sets in. The result is flat beer that makes you sad. Our patent pending method of filling growlers keeps beer fresh and happy longer.

Our "beer gun" (cool huh) injects CO2 into the growler before the first drop of beer flows. As the beer rises the CO2 creates a protective barrier that keeps that pesky O2 at bay. Cap it quickly and you have a growler of fine craft beer that should keep fresh at least two weeks without opening. After opening, you've got 24-48 hours.

History Of The Growler

Why It's Called A Growler


In the old days you went to your local pub and filled up a tin bucket to-go. The buckets had lids because no one likes spilled beer. As the beer sloshed the escaping CO2 would make the lids "growl". They called it "rushing the growler" because guys were rushing to get their bubbling buckets of beer home before it got flat. Or that could be completely wrong, because other people say it's called a growler for the way customers "growled" when their barkeep only filled their container half way.

Either way, you won't find tin buckets or shifty barkeeps here. Just all kinds of cool growlers waiting to be filled to the top with fresh, delicious, local and hard to find beers.

Visit Our Store

Our emphasis is local beers from DFW and Texas. You'll also find a few notable brews from farther afield. Generally, we try to carry beers that can't be found in 12 oz cans or bottles, especially draft-only beers.

About

About Craft and Growler

in November 2012. Formerly investors in a local brewery, Kevin & Cathrine quit their careers as patent attorneys, and jumped into the beer business by creating a place where you can bring home growlers of local and regional microbrews that are not bottled. Since then, they have expanded their store by carrying the largest selection of growlers in the world, and a huge assortment of beer-related stuff.

Serving the Community

We've hosted numerous fundraisers and donated a percentage of our proceeds to non-profits and community groups. Each week, we host "Non-Profit Tuesday", in which a percentage of our proceeds are donated to a selected non-profit or community group.

We're always looking for a way to help out so if you've got a cause that needs to raise money - GIVE US A GROWL.
