There’s A Secret Shack On The Biggest Hop Farm In The US, What’s In It Will Make You Thirsty.

There’s A Secret Shack On The Biggest Hop Farm In The US, What’s In It Will Make You Thirsty.

Secret Cabin

Goose Island Director of Operations, Mark Kamarauskas, welcomes you to a little taste of Bourbon County Heaven.

 

Apologies for the gratuitous click-bait title, but we just couldn’t resist in this case. In rural Bonners Ferry, Idaho, you’ll find the largest commercial hop farm in the contiguous United States. Of course you’ll find hops and plenty of them, but what you might not expect to find is a secret (to all but a few) shack that is home to some of the most sought after “whalez” around – specifically Goose Island Bourbon County Stout variants that are extremely hard to find … here are a few photos documenting our night after being semi-secretly whisked away on an ATV and subjected to copious amounts of rare BCBS beers. Those of us on this little excursion lived to tell the tale and no beer writers were harmed in the drinking of this beer. Cheers!

Rare Bourbon County Stouts

The offerings include Proprietor’s ’14 and Rare Goose Island Bourbon County Stout bottles.

 

 

 

Director of Operations, Mark Kamarauskas, and Head Brewer, Keith Gabbett, reveal the hidden treasures one by one. Beers appeared and, perhaps not so coincidentally, so did more people!

This is not your ordinary old wooden shack … at least on the inside.
