Founders CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout)

CBS was born when we stumbled upon some bourbon barrels that had previously housed maple syrup. We opted to put the same base beer as KBS, an imperialized version of Breakfast Stout, in the maple barrels and, after one taste, we knew we had something special. Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.

Last bottled in 2011, CBS has become one of the most highly sought-after beers in the world and for good reason. It’s damn good. You all have been very vocal in petitioning for its return and it would’ve been cruel for us to hold out any longer in delivering on that.

CBS will be available everywhere (all 46 states we’re available), including our Grand Rapids taproom, on draft and in 750mL bottles beginning on December 1

This one is near and dear to our hearts. Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki wanted to make the birthday of his little sister, Liz, a special one. So he did what he does best and brewed a stout using a few of her favorite ingredients: fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla aged in bourbon barrels to round out those beautiful flavors. Liz was floored and we think you will be too.

Deep black color with a thick dark caramel head.

Intense fruity flavor with lots of blueberries, bourbon, cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla beans, licorice, roasted malts, cola.

Full body with perfect carbonation. Stick feeling. Alcohol of 10.5% abv

Founders Taproom coming to Detroit 

Founders Brewing Company is reportedly opening a taproom in Detroit.

Crain’s Detroit Business reports that the Grand Rapids brewery responsible for some of Michigan’s most iconic craft beer is opening the taproom in Detroit’s fast-developing Midtown neighborhood.

A 12,000-square-foot building currently sits at the proposed site on Charlotte Street. The reported location is about a 5-minute walk away from Little Caesars Arena where the Red Wings and Pistons will play next season.


The report cites unnamed sources, but if the expansion does occur, it will mark Founders first in a city other than Grand Rapids since it was founded by Dave Engbers and Mike Stevens in 1997.

An official announcement from the brewery is expected on Tuesday, April 25, according to Crain’s.

Founders expanded its Grand Rapids taproomat 235 Grandville Ave SW, in 2014. The $25 million project doubled its beer-making capacity to 600,000 barrels. Already a player in the national craft beer scene, it appears Founders is ready to take another step with a jump to Detroit.
