In fact, it's so rare, that Founders didn't even bother to bottle it this time around, says David Rodriguez, the co-owner of Kush. In beer geek speak, a brew such as this is so rare and elusive that it is often referred to as a "whale" or a "great white buffalo", according to Rodriguez.
Founders CBS (Canadian breakfast stout) is a blend of coffees and imported chocolates that is aged in spent bourbon barrels once used to hold Michigan maple syrup.
Rodriguez says he is getting more than just a slim keg, or 1/6 of a barrel. Instead he has a quarter barrel of CBS, which should equal roughly 165 pours. The beer will be served in a six-ounce snifter at $9 a piece. It's a heavy brew sitting at 10.6 alcohol-by-volume.
Just a few years ago, Rodriguez could not have even dreamed of finding Founders CBS anywhere remotely close to Miami.
"Distribution out here is getting better and better," Rodriguez said.
