According to a press release from Founders Brewing Co., Breakfast Stout will returning this month. The popular 8.3 percent ABV imperial stout is brewed with two types of imported chocolate, oats and a blend of Colombian and Sumatra coffee sourced from Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Ferris Coffee and Nut.
“Over a decade ago, Dave Engbers, co-founder of Founders Brewing Co., was offered a chocolate-covered espresso bean while bartending at the Founders’ Taproom in Grand Rapids,” reads a press release. “Washing the bean down with a Founders Porter, Engbers decided to launch an experimental trial with beer, chocolate and coffee. The oats were added to the mix, and Breakfast Stout came together as arguably the most popular seasonal we make.”
As has historically been the case, Breakfast Stout will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles which have a suggested retail price of $10.99. In an email, Jena Dean, spokesperson for Founders, told Tenemu that bottles of Breakfast Stout are scheduled to begin shipping to retailers across the brewery’s distribution network by the end of this month.
