    Is founders breakfast stout going to be difficult to get or are they going to keep pumping this stuff out over the next few weeks/months?
    I know its out there but I haven't seen it "shelved" at all..I have only had a "beer guy" or two tell me that they have a few left "in the back", and i passed, due to my already ridiculous bcs bill..... I could have bought the stuff all day long last year..but now it's all gone....gone I tell you... GONE!

    I don't live in Chicago, but it's my experience that they will be pumping this stuff out through December.

    Thought I had heard that they were going to be producing more this year. Website shows it going for 6 months (Sept-Feb). Hard to find after the initial release as folks have been waiting to grab their starter packs. As I recall, Binny's had cases sitting there unopened later in the season last year.

    That said....Woodmans in Kenosha had a LOT of it on the floor as of 2 days ago.

    Travel out to the suburbs. It's everywhere.

    I was also at Woodmans yesterday and they had about 10 cases. You can find it.

    You should be able to get it without a problem all over Founder's distribution area.

    Yeah its pretty much everywhere here. I think it just because it just came out and everyone ran out to get it. Give it a little time and you shouldn't have a problem. Like everyone is saying its supposed to go through Feb so there is plenty of time.

    I think every single Binny's has this still on the shelf. At least all of the ones I have been to. I've also seen it at grocery stores. Not hard to find.

    Didn't even know they had released it yet when I wandered into a MI shop and grabbed 4. They must have just gotten them in because they had plenty.

    a case of FBS is nothing...I don't think it's hoarding when it's all over the place already

    Seems to be readily available all over greater Detroit area. Hit 3 shops today and all had plenty.
    Only one place (Champagne's) put a limit on how much you could buy (2 4 packs per day).
