The Founders Breakfast Stout label — a bib-wearing baby hungrily gobbling up a bowl of oatmeal — is so wrong yet so right.

Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Founders Brewing Co. will distribute its beers in Idaho beginning next month.

Watch for Founders kickoff events in mid-February, including a tap invasion from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 17 at Whole Foods’ upstairs River Room.

This has been a long time coming. Founders is renowned for its dedication to quality.

Founders Breakfast Stout is one of the brews I hunt down when I visit beer and grocery stores in other states. A monstrous, big-bodied double stout brewed with flaked oats, chocolate and coffee, it’s too freaking rich and delicious. It’s sold in 12-ounce bottles, which is great, because it’s nearly 9 percent ABV.
