Well that's good to know, I guess.

I should look harder for more maple stuff, 'tis the season and all that. Pumpkin anything can go pound sand.

I've enjoyed the 2 batches of CBS I had. Haven't gone for this year's since I already have too many BBA stouts I ain't drinking, but I always appreciate the 12oz format. Most other maple stouts I've had are too maple forward and cloying. I found the CBS to be relatively restrained in that regard. Wish it was thicker though like kbbq always says.

I don't think I've ever had CBS and liked it. What a letdown. Local breweries are killing it with maple lately around here tho.. (but I'm a bit spoiled in Stl)
Always rubbing it in. :twisted:

Don't buy Founders. There's plenty of other good stuff out there and they're a bunch of fudge heads:

There's another good one since I posted the above links back in May (I love the picture they chose for the article):

Alamo actually just removed Founders from their theaters... at least in the Phoenix market, not sure about other places.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

yeah...the bar’s statement was super weird; it essentially rambled on and said that some of their employees may be racist, but that they didnt know, but they could be, and how it could be true of any company and they linked an TED talk about overreactions in the information age.

Founders didn't handle the PR well from the very beginning. Huge mistake!

Shame on them for not firing that manager from the very beginning, and getting to the bottom of the "black" and "white" copier incident.

All around this was the absolute worst way to handle a racial situation especially with social media the way it is.

They closed the Detroit brewery for 3+ months. When they re-open they are donating all of the profits from the location through at least 2022. Will that suppress the backlash, probably not.

They also paid the dude off, so we are all good now, right? :roll:

I will still drink their beer. None of this fudge happened at the Grand Rapids location and I still know a few good people that work there.

I wont hate an entire company for a couple bad seeds and poor judgment, just like I dont hate all people living in America because of trump and his cronies.

PS CBS was good with the very first batch. Thick mouth feel, sweet mapley goodness with a bourbon kick. It has sucked every release after that.....thin, no maple...blah.

They also royally drymounted up the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce fudge, too (see the link I posted above from the metro times). First they tweeted that they were terminating their membership with the chamber due to its endorsement of the homophobic, gay-hating gubernatorial candidate. Then Founders went back on that announcement and blamed the tweet on a rogue employee. :roll:

That was another big one that I was forgetting.

This all started happening after they were purchased by Mahou San Miguel of Spain. Coincidence????

Or is this mishandling deliberate???

I'm thankful that BCBS is in such short demand and supply is so high that I don't have to stand in front of a liquor store the morning after Thanksgiving.

Yes. Right next to the 2018s that this shop put out a few months ago at a slightly inflated cost.

They had the Café de Olla Stout and the Mon Chéri Stout. There were at least 2 cases of each, and I think they were both priced at $25 per.
