Grit & Grain
The Story of Bourbon County Stout
We spent the better part of a year with our friends at Goose Island, who wanted to explore the lifecycle of the famed barrel-aged beer, Bourbon County Stout. To tell the story, we trekked through white oak forests and toured coopers, distilleries, and rick houses, not to mention all the fun we had filming in Chicago.
Goose Island’s internal team, Mike Smith and Mike Erickson, produced this episodic documentary, while Ken Hunnemeder shared directorial and cinematography duties with Sergio Salgado here at Furnace FPS. To round out the talented team, Good Beer Hunting provided creative direction for Grit & Grain. We are thankful to have been a part of this great production crew that made the project so worthwhile.
An episode a week was released starting at the end of September. The video below is the first chapter in the Grit & Grain series. If you’d like to watch the whole thing, get some popcorn, sit tight and click here link.
