THE FOUNDERS CBS RELEASE PARTY AT RUSTICO ALEXANDRIA

On Thursday, December 7th, join us at Rustico Alexandria as we celebrate the arrival of Founders CBS 2017! On this night, we’ll pour a slew of specialties from the Michigan brewery, a total of 10 beers in all!

One of craft beer’s most sought after releases, Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout is brewed with a blend of coffee and imported chocolates, then aged in Bourbon barrels that also aged pure Michigan maple syrup. Released in extremely small quantities, you don’t want to miss this inimitable brew!

Other notables include Backwoods Bastard, a Bourbon barrel-aged Wee Heavy; and DKML, a malt liquor-inspired Strong Ale brewed with corn and aged in Bourbon barrels.
