Any Michiganders get their fix yet? I tried this last night for the first time, it was the best stout I have ever had. Simply amazing...

Hmmm, I am in Ky and I had never heard of it.

Of course I am the dumbass that lives within 50 or so miles of Makers Mark, Four roses, and Knob Creek distilleries, amd I have yet to ask what they do with their used barrels.

It's in Michigan. The Bourbon Stout and the Kentucky Breakfast Stout are two different beers too, IIRC.

We get the Breakfast Stout:


and the Kentucky Breakfast Stout:



They have a burbon impy stout listed on ratebeer.com but that appears to have only been a very limited release. One recent taping of a KBS keg on a Sunday AM around here made the paper. If they have another variant on the KBS, I would hope it makes it way out here too!

I just had a bit, it's on the streets now. Kentucky Breakfast Stout is a Michigan beer from Founders Brewery where they take their regular Breakfast Stout and age it in bourbon barrels. Probably my favorite beer of all time. I managed to score a 4 pack but I'm holding on to it until next year. It's even better with age.

To give people an idea of how hard this can be to come by, Discount Drinks in Wyandotte was selling them for $5/12 oz. bottle, limit 2.

Yep, my LHBS had a 4 pack limit, but my LHBS is 10 minutes away from the brewery. It's quite pricey but awesomly delicious!

for what its worth, I toured the Wild Turkey distillery recently and they said they sold the used bourbon barrels for ~$20. I had just had a few samples of their 'high wine', the non oak aged liquor straight out of the still, so I neglected to ask how to acquire one of the barrels.

Then this must mean you are near GR. I love founder's beers and it's nice to live only 15 miles from it.
