CBS for Beds

Did you miss out on Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout in the bottle? Most of us did, there's some crazies out there for the CBS. Well, Waldo Pizza is giving you an option to get a great beer and help out a charity at the same time. They are auctioning 6 different bottles of CBS on Ebay. Right now each of the bottles is going for around $25, sure to go up. That's quite a bargain right now. All Half the proceeds from the auctions will go to Sleepyhead Beds, a charity that gives beds to needy children. Remember that scene in "The Blind Side" when Michael Oher said he'd never had a bed? Well if Memphis had Sleepyhead Beds he would have had a bed long before LeAnn Tuohy took him in.

The bottles are only available for local pickup so you won't be bidding against people from outside the area. This may be your last best chance to get a bottle of CBS for home consumption. It's definitely your best chance to help out some kids while you get your mapley stout goodness.


  1. If I understood their website correctly, they are only giving half of the proceeds to charity.

  2. This is good on one level and wrong on sooo many others if Steve is right.

  3. From the website, presented without comment:

    "One of the rarest and most anticipated beers released and we've got some bottles to share with you.
    We are auctioning 6 bottles and giving half of the proceeds to Sleepyhead Beds, a local charity that provides beds to children in need.
    We've restricted the auction to local pickup only in the hopes that these beers go to a good local home."

  4. I corrected the post to reflect the half the proceeds thing. They probably should change it to all profits go to charity because they're going to end up at $75/bottle.
