Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) To Be Bottled!
Founders Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, MI has long been one of my favorite Midwestern brewers. They have a solid line up of regular brews along with a great deal of tasty special releases. This is a special release that I have enjoyed on tap multiple times in the past and is now being bottled for the first time ever!
I'm not sure if I'll be able to track down a bottle of this due to all the hype surrounding it....but we will see how it goes. For more info - check out the below direct from the horses mouth at Founders:
Canadian Breakfast Stout!
Taproom Release = Saturday, Oct. 1
Distribution Release = Monday, Oct. 3
Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) is the epitome of why we launched the Backstage Series: it brings some of the our most sought-after beers, which have been available primarily at the taproom or at a few select events, to a much larger audience. Despite being the fifth highest rated beer in the world on BeerAdvocate, CBS has never been bottled--that is, until now.
Taproom Release: The taproom release at 235 Grandville Ave SE in downtown Grand Rapids will begin at 11 a.m. on October 1. There will be about 1700 bottles available for purchase at $18 each. A strict limit of two (2) bottles per person will apply, and all bottles will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Because a line is expected to form before 11 a.m., numbers will be handed out so that the line can remain intact once the taproom doors open. CBS will be featured on draft, and CBS merchandise will be available in the Founders company store, which is on the north end of the taproom. As with all Founders specialty products, growler fills will not be available for CBS.
Distribution Release: If you're going to be trying to get some CBS from your local retailer, we recommend calling your local distributor to see where you'll be able to find it near you.
