Archer Liquors – Online Store Review

Archer Liquors – Online Store Review

Archer Liquors, in Chicago, Illinois, has a different method of online shopping. Most stores will make either their entire inventory or a large subset available to online shoppers. Archer, however, will put together different “boxes” of beer. Each box will have a selection of beers that Archer has specifically picked. I have signed up for their email alerts that are sent out when new boxes are available. The latest alert quickly woke up the beer community because … Read entire article »

Founders Breakfast Stout

Founders Breakfast Stout

While Founders Brewing Company brews a wide variety of beers, they’re best known for  their array of highly-sought-after stouts.  Packing bars and other drinking establishments across the country on release dates, their line of distinguished stouts are sure to please anyone who has a penchant for black-as-night beers.  Fellow author Russ just took a recent look at KBS in its 2011 and 2012 incarnations, describing the beer as “phenomenal”.  For this review, however, I’ll be taking … Read entire article »

Tonight I’m taking a look at the two most recent releases of their famed KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout), a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Please note that this is NOT simply Founders Breakfast Stout aged in bourbon barrels, it is actually a completely different base beer–the same used to create CBS. KBS is aged in a … Read entire article »

Founders Curmudgeon’s Better Half

Founders Curmudgeon’s Better Half

Originally named Kaiser Curmudgeon, Founders Brewing Company’s Curmudgeon’s Better Half receives the ‘CBS’ barrel treatment. That is, Founders takes the base beer (Curmudgeon’s Old Ale), throws it into some barrels that once held bourbon and maple syrup, and lets it rest until is resembles something to be enjoyed as a dessert – or breakfast, if you are like the Curmudgeon on the label and enjoy this with your pancakes. A true breakfast of champions. This … Read entire article »

Cooking: Dark Chocolate Founders Breakfast Stout Cupcakes with Bourbon Frosting

We’re throwing a party at my house tonight, which means that it’s time for me to bake. If you follow me on Twitter (or we’re Facebook friends), you know that I bake a fair amount. Now that we’ve created The Beer Circle, however, I’m trying to focus more on incorporating delicious brews into my baking (and cooking). Tonight’s treat is Dark Chocolate Founder’s Breakfast Stout cupcakes, topped with a bourbon frosting. It seems that most stout … Read entire article »
