LUSH Gift Package Binges On Goose Island Riches

2010_11_23_RBCS.jpg If today's Chicagoist Gift Guide just doesn't do it for you, or if you don't see something for the beer geek in your life, consider the beer riches just released moments ago by LUSH Wine & Spirits. For $155, they have raided their cellar and put together a Vertical Tasting collection of Bourbon County Stout from Goose Island, as well as some special bottles as well.

Rachel Driver at LUSH tells us that bottles of BCS from '06 '07 through '10 are included, as well as bombers of Vanilla, Coffee and Rare (!) Bourbon County Stout. They can be picked up on December 17th at which point you can continue to cellar them, or laugh maniacally while you bathe in it. But first they're hosting a tasting with all the beers and hosted by Goose Island brewers who will tell you all about how awesome these beers are while you gape in awe.

Better hurry, though - when we spoke with Rachel the phones were a-ringing, and they're capping the tasting at 20 attendees. Get your ass on the phone to the West Town Location.
