Bourbon Barrel Binge: Part 2

Two weeks ago we posted this about the run on Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout that was taking place at Festival Foods in Oshkosh. So what’s happened since?

On Wednesday I talked with Tom at Festival. He said the first 7 cases of the beer sold out within 24 hours. Luckily, their distributor was able to locate an additional 5 cases the following week. Tom said the 12 cases that came to the Oshkosh store were the most any outlet in the state received.

This is all fairly amazing when you consider Oshkosh’s history as a hardcore lager town. That a beer as big and rich as Bourbon Barrel Stout has developed such an intense following in such a short time is a good example of the changing tastes of beer drinkers around here.

Postscript: Just checked in with Festival. There's a case and one 4-pack remaining. Get it while you can!
