Goose Island brew course and tasting

Join Goose Island brewer Austin Niestrom to taste and make beers at UBrew in London

Goose Island Beer Company, the brewery who brought Bourbon County Stout into the world back in 1992, want to teach you how they brew dark beer. Goose Island Brewer Austin Niestrom is flying in from Chicago to hold an exclusive brew course at Ubrew, where you'll brew a recipe that was inspired by one of the brewery's exclusive Fulton & Wood series. It’s a sweet porter recipe inspired by a beer called Real Nice Surprise which was released in 2015. Once your beer's fermented and bottled, you'll be able to swing by and collect roughly 15 bottles to take home.

In the downtime between boiling, mashing and pitching Austin will be taking you through an in-depth tasting of both rare and unreleased beers, including Cooper Project 3, a beer that has never travelled over to the UK. 2017 bottles of Bourbon County Stout will also be opened and tasted on the night, as well as the Sour Sisters - Halia, a 7.5% sour ale with peaches, Gillian, a 9.5% sour ale with strawberries , Madame Rose, a 9% Belgian style brown ale with sour cherries, Lolita, an 8.7% sour ale with raspberries, and finally Matilda - a bretted Belgian style pale.

The course itself is just as hands on, challenging and informative as our normal brew courses - but this time you'll also have the opportunity to buy a recipe pack to brew more of the beer at home should you want a whole batch to yourself!

Lunch will also be provided on the day from our neighbours, Bone Daddies. Tickets are limited, so grab yours while you can!
