I was minding my own business checking out some fresh paint when I decided to peruse Untapped. When what to my wondering eyes did appear but a 2018 Bourbon County Variant. I had yet to try any of the new versions and Midnight Orange Stout was calling my name at Jefferson Tap & Grille. For a first-timer, I was impressed with the bar's attractive facade and friendly neighborhood vibe.
Seriously, who doesn't love Mexican Mocha and fresh Spanish orange peel paired together? This may not be for everyone; however, I didn't find it to be as sweet as expected due to the high ABV (15%). It was the perfect way to warm up on a chilly day and the flavor combination worked well for me.
I'm a big fan of Goose Island and hope to drink all eight new variants, particularly as drafts. Here's the lineup https://bit.ly/2GKtZuH
Check the bar's Facebook page for the most recent Bourbon County series feature. I will definitely return to Jefferson Tap & Grille for an extended visit, especially during patio season!
