Imperial stout fans, look to Asheville, North Carolina. Hi-Wire Salted Maple 10W-40 Imperial Stout debuts Friday

This series started with 10W-40 Imperial Stout, so named because the chocolate, coffee, and vanilla heavy stout pours like motor oil.

Never resting, Hi-Wire has released more variants of 10W-40, including Horchata, German Chocolate Cake, and even a Barrel-aged 10W-40. This beer is quickly becoming a state “stout icon”.

Founders CBS returns again in November. Why no rider? The Mounties threw some shade

Founders CBS 2018

Founders CBS will return to the brewery’s Barrel-Aged lineup again on November 2nd. This time the horse is missing its rider. 

One of the most demanded beers in Grand Rapids, Michigan based Founders Brewing’s lineup is CBS, aka Canadian Breakfast Stout.

The imperial stout is brewed with a blend of coffee and imported chocolates, then aged in spent bourbon barrels that have most recently been aging pure Michigan maple syrup. Folks go insane at the mere mention of this beer.

The first time the world saw bottles of this release was in October of 2011, as the second release in the brewery’s Backstage Series.

Since then, the Backstage Series has grown eventually morphing into the Barrel-Aged Series. Fans begged, but CBS was still missing from the lineup until December of last year.

The brewery has officially confirmed that Founders CBS will be available again in the Grand Rapids taproom and distribution for a third time (in bottles) on November 2nd. This time – the horse has thrown its iconic Canadian Mountie rider. Why? The Royal Canadian Mounted Police filed a legal cease & desist over the depiction of the Mountie seen below. We know it’s not a titillating story, but it solves the mystery behind the horse with no rider on the upcoming bottle.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Chocolate. Maple Syrup. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability:
750ml Bottles, Draft.
Latest Return: 11/2/18
