    I'm currently enjoying a Founders Breakfast Stout and can't help but notice that Founders seems to have switched to a new bottle, the glass now having "Founders Brewing Co." branded on the side.

    It's even more peculiar because I have a 4-pack of Backwoods Bastard bottles a week before this that is in an unmarked bottle.

    I realize that this is pretty meaningless, but hey, so is pretty much everything on here. So does anyone else have these bottles and is Founders using for beer other than Breakfast Stout?

    That's unfortunate. It's showing up for me, so I'll be damned if I know how to fix that. Hopefully my description is enough to keep this thread from being more of a waste of time than it already was.

    I noticed this too. Also the label has the date printed on it which is an improvement over the dates stamped on the bottle that would always smudge.

    My bottles dont have anything branded on them, but did notice the new labels. I like that the bottle date is now printed on the label rather than the date stamp on the bottle itself. Less chance it gets rubbed off.

    Noticed this with Harvest Ale this past weekend:

    The Mosaic Promise (fresh batch, bottled 10/12/15!) I picked up tonight had the same raised print.

    Interesting. I got some this years FBS and it was a regular bottle as always.

    Same for me, but the Breakfast Stout doesn't have it

    Does the raised lettering spell out 'take care of New York first'?
