Goose Island's Bourbon County Brand Stout is available now. I would recommend picking up a four pack. Also, I don't think anyone has mentioned Revolution. Their Anti Hero IPA is one of my favorites.

What about Goose Island? I know they have a big barrel program. Or do they only sell those at the brewery?

Also, is Zombie Dust usually available year round? Or is that seasonal?
There may or may not be any GI barrel stuff on shelves, they just did a big release on the coffee and cherry rye versions of bourbon county, which sold out quick and but you may find some bourbon county or a sour or two. I know my local shop here in Indiana still have some of each, but none of the variants. As for Zombie Dust it is year round, and its going to be really hard to find some but they did have a stack at Binny's South Loop a week ago.

Awesome fellas! I'll keep my eyes peeled for a bunch of this stuff when I'm up there! I definitely feel more informed thanks to you guys. I'll let you guys know what I end up grabbing when I'm up there.

I also know my uncle is taking us to The Publican downtown too. That should be pretty stinkin awesome.

It's nice to visit the GI Clyborn location just to compare the local beer to the distributed beer. It's a short walk to the pub from the Clyborn Brown Line stop.

There is a Binny's right in DG with a pretty good selection. 3F will be hard to find, though. I didn't see any BCBS last time I was there, either. But I definitely second the suggestions for anything Pipeworks as well as Revolution.

Goose Island has quite a few Bourbon Barreled beers out right now. If you can find Night Stalker I'd recommend that one. It is retired but I can usually find a few that are still for sale. Usually have been bottled for almost two years now. Any of the Bourbon County beers are good really.

funny i was googling what beers to get from chicago because my brother is coming back in town and i wanted him to bring home some zombie dust for me to try. Is that beer hard to find on the shelves?

open for other suggestions as well. We get goose island in VA, including BCBS (wasn't a fan anyways), but other 3F beers, or other beers in general that are worth getting?

I would love to go visit Solemn Oath but as I said in my first post I probably won't have time to visit any breweries.
