(Charleston, SC) – Just as you can count on the sun rising each day, you can count on at least one distributor shipping out a limited Founders Brewing release early.
Last Monday, the brewery posted on its Instagram account that it had just bottled Frangelic Mountain Brown, the next release in the Backstage Series. On Friday, South Carolina-based Charleston Beer Exchange shared that it had the beer in stock. Fresh beer, right?
Only one problem. The beer wasn’t supposed to be released in shops until July 2nd.
Per its website, Carolina Craft Distributing Still tracking the mystery wholesaler that is responsible for spreading the beer around Charleston and educating retailers on the July 2nd stipulation. Or did CBX not obey orders? Who knows…
It isn’t the first time that this has happened.
Adding insult to injury for Founders, the beer is already up on eBay.
