The line for special version of Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout available at Binny's in 2012.

There are plenty more brewers releasing their big dark beers this week. Also, December 1 is the inaugural Small Brewer Sunday, an event promoted by the Brewers Association to focus on local breweries, in the same vein as Small Business Saturday. There are just a few brewers with related events right now, but watch for that number to grow.
