Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout: The legend returns Dec. 1

There are big fish, and then there are White Whales. Founders Brewing Company's Canadian Breakfast Stout is the Moby Dick of craft beer. It's an even more epic version of our already beloved Kentucky Breakfast Stout - except it's aged in whiskey barrels that most recently stored maple syrup. Chocolate and coffee notes add to the unforgettable flavor dynamic in what is one of America's most highly sought-after beers. 

Founders is bottling CBS for the first time since 2011, as part of its ongoing 20th anniversary celebration. To join in the party, each HopCat location will be hosting a CBS tapping event Dec. 1. Warmth and fuzziness feelings guaranteed.
