Nearly every month seems to have an exciting release, and one of the most anticipated of the year is March, with the release of Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS). KBS is not only one of my top 3 favorite beers (check out my review from last year), but it also highly rated on Beer Advocate and other beer related websites.
For those not familiar with KBS, from the Founders website…
“What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.”
Founders has posted information regarding the release of KBS at the brewery here, but the bullet points are as follow…
Saturday, March 10th at 11am at their Taproom in Grand Rapids
To purchase a case, 4-pack or individual bottle, enter through the rear entrance
$114 per case, $19 per 4-pack, $4.75 per bottle, 1 case limit
First come, First serve. KBS will sell out quickly
If you’d rather skip the shenanigans of the release party and pick some up around the South Bend area, keep in mind that bottles are extremely difficult to come by and often sell out without hitting shelves. To the best of my recollection, Fiddler’s Hearth (South Bend, IN) and Wheatberry (Buchanan, MI) had KBS on tap last year shortly after it was released at the brewery. When I hear more, I’ll be sure to pass along the information.
