The Wine and Cheese Place will be starting Founders CBS Canadian Breakfast Stout Reservations around 8:15.
Since I am confident that it is arriving today and I have an allocation. I thought I would start the reservations process at 8:15. I would rather do this before we open and I am not interrupted with other things here.
After it goes live and you click the link and see nothing, that means it is sold out and I have "turned it off".
- We only have 24 bottles (well 23, we need to save one for us to beer geeks to drink at the store). 1 bottle per person.
- You can request pickup at any of our stores or shipping. It might take a few days to get it transferred.
- Just because you get your order in is no guarantee, I will need to confirm. Our system has no way of automatically stopping at 23 orders.
- Your confirmation will say something like your order has been reviewed and waiting for product. You will then get another email telling you that the beer is ready for pick up at the store when it does arrive in the next few hours.
Founders CBS...$16.99 / 750ml
Grand Rapids, Michigan, August 19, 2011—Founders Brewing Co. Vice President/Director of Marketing Dave Engbers announced today that the highly anticipated Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) will be the second release in the company’s 750mL “Backstage Series”. It will be released to the market on October 3, 2011, with a taproom release party on October 1.
There has been a great deal of anticipation and speculation regarding the upcoming release after the success of Blushing Monk, the series’ debut, earlier this year. Canadian Breakfast Stout is the epitome of why Founders launched the Backstage Series: it brings some of the brewery’s most sought-after beers, which have been available primarily at the taproom or at a few select events, to a much larger audience.
"Canadian Breakfast Stout is an Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of coffees and imported chocolates and then aged in spent bourbon barrels that have most recently been aging pure Michigan maple syrup. The final product has had stellar reviews and currently is the 5th highest rated beer in the world on BeerAdvocate.
As co-founder Dave Engbers explains, “Releasing small specialty batches is a great way for us to connect to our core beer enthusiast. Fundamentally, we are a small brewery that loves to do things our own way. This isn’t about flooding the shelves with a beer that we hope people will try; it’s about producing the best damn beer we can brew and offering it to those enthusiasts that have supported our passion for great beer.”
While we aren't ready to release the next beers in our Backstage Series, we maintain that it will consist of "popular one-offs” that have been offered in the taproom over the years and have become favorites among patrons and brewery staff.
“I think part of what people love about Founders, besides our beer, is that we listen to what they are saying,” says President Mike Stevens. “With our new line, now we can offer them more of what they’ve been asking for.”
We expect to release one additional product in the 2011 Backstage Series later this year and 3 more release in 2012." -- Founders
