Please note: Goose Island is no longer accepting refund submissions for 2015 BCBS.
In case you missed it, Goose Island is refunding folks who bought 2015 Bourbon County Stout with select bottling dates $15.00 for each bottle purchased. These dates are for the following timestamps for 2015:
Bourbon County Stout: 10/9, 10/12, 10/22, 10/22, 10/23, 10/26, 10/30, 11/4, 11/5
Bourbon County Stout Proprietor’s: 9/18
The deadline to submit for a refund is September 15, 2016.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Before you start, make sure you’ve downloaded the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Refund Form (no longer available). If you need to run to the printer, you’ll need to make sure you have this PDF.
First, make sure your photos are handy.
You need to take a photo of each label so that the timestamp of bottling is clearly visible. You can do this with your smartphone, of course.
Next, grab our Google Docs template for submitting the rest of the information.
This allows you to submit two labels to a page.
- If you only have two, jump to step 6
- If you have more than two, select the entire page
- Copy the contents
- Add a page break
- Paste the contents into a new page
- Repeat for every page you need
- For each image, right-click and select “Replace Image”
- Choose your photo
- Rinse and repeat until you have an image embedded in the page for each of your labels
Of course, I ran out of ink when I was doing this, so you can also use Google Cloud Print to send it to a Fedex location nearby. Alternatively, you can save the document as a PDF, slap it on a thumb drive, and take it to a facility to print.
Finally, you need to add the neck labels. They come off very easily, as if they were made for refunds!
- Grab the neck label flap firmly
- Rotate and continue pulling
- Once it’s off, affix it to your printout below a label image. The adhesive will still work enough to stick to your pages.
- When you’re done, you should have pages with images and neck labels
After that, all that’s left is to fill out the form and put it in an envelope.
Don’t forget, you can get some serious weight out of this little package. You can mail up to 2 ounces for two stamps, so add an extra just in case. I had a full case, so 7 pages, and mine came out 1.9 oz. Better safe than sorry!
