March 2017 Beer of the Month: Founders' KBS

It’s March Madness and that means its time for Founders Brewing’s KBS release!

Kentucky Breakfast Stout is one of the most sought after brews throughout Beer City and the rest of the USA.

Aged in bourbon barrels for a year in the cavernous underground beneath Grand Rapids, KBS is frequently included as one of the best beers in the world on numerous lists and has crashed the web servers in years past because folks wanted to figure out how to find it.

This year, KBS Week runs from March 6-11 and tickets for the 25 local tapping events sold out quickly. Founders held a first-come, first-serve event on March 11 in their Taproom.

It’s 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.

It’s 11.8% ABV may be one of the reasons RateBeer gave it a ranking of 100.

You better be quick on the trigger, this rarity goes fast. And once it’s gone, it’s gone!
