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

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.

FOUNDERS FROOTWOOD


Founders Frootwood is now a February release by the Grand Rapids, Michigan brewery.

Much of the brewery’s barrel-aged offerings are found in the Backstage Series with a couple of exceptions – the highly desiredKentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) and Backwoods Bastard. Incidentally, the next big barrel-aged release by Founders, known as Lizard of Kozdebuted in December. Blueberries and bourbon were a great way to finish out a really weird year.

February will bring Founders

Frootwood is a cherry ale, aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels. Speaking of which, Founders ages another ridiculously popular beer in maple syrup bourbon –Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS).

We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy sting, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long.

A few things to note, FoundersFrootwood will be both a 12 ounce and 750 milliliter bottle release, as well as draft.  Part of a newly branded “Barrel Aged Series” which will be the new monicker for the brewery’s barrel-aged lineup in 2017 forward.

The brewery now states Frootwood will debut in February, 2017.

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer (w/CherriesBarrel AgedBourbon.Maple Syrup.)
