Founders CBS Acquired – What More Can You Say?

Founders Canadian Breakfast StoutYup! You read it right. I am now the proud owner of a bottle of CBS – one of the lucky few in NYC.

I was debating exactly what to write in this post, but I can’t settle on anything thoughtful. I was going to share exact details of how I came to acquire this very sought after craft beer, but I don’t want to bore you with lengthy details.

A quick recap for those that are curious: after some online research, a couple of phone calls, an attempted bribe or two, and two visits to Whole Foods by my amazing little sister who completely supports my craft beer hobby, I am now in possession of this sweet, sweet nectar.

Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout - One Tall DudeWhat’s funny is that since I’m away from NJ until Thursday, I have not yet held the actual bottle – I just know that it’s patiently waiting for me at home. Here’s to family members – people you can always rely on.

When Magda sent me these pictures of the bottle, I felt like a 60s kid at Christmas who just got a wooden horse. After all, kids now are brats and nothing is good enough – but man, a wooden horse in 60s, now that was a present worth getting excited about.

People in the craft beer community have been chatting about what they should do with their bottles of CBS – drink them or age them. Being that this is a special beer for me, it’s going right into the back of the aging fridge to hang for a few months.

I already have an idea of the special occasion when I’d like to open it — but that incredible day won’t come until next year!
