The bourbon barrel-aged Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) from Founders Brewing is one of the top-ranked beers in the world — it has a 100 rating on both RateBeer and Beer Advocate. Announced in a press release, the Michigan brewery says this fall will be the last time it’s released.
“This will be the last year I plan on making CBS, so get it while you can,” Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki said in a press release.
CBS was first released in bottles in 2011, and for years it was an extremely rare beer to find. The imperial stout is brewed with a blend of coffee and imported chocolates, then aged in bourbon barrels that previously housed pure Michigan maple syrup. In December of 2018, CBS was added as a regular to Founders’s Barrel-Aged Series and released in 750mL bottles. The final release, available only in 12oz bottles, is slated for November 1.
