As it has for the past few years, Founders Brewing Co.’s Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) will be debuting in the brewery’s home state a short time before the national release.
That is because the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based brewery will once again be holding its KBS Week. Scheduled for March 5-10, the event is a “week-long celebration of the annual release of KBS” that is taking place at both of Founder’s breweries located in Grand Rapids and Detroit.
Kentucky Breakfast Stout is an imperial breakfast stout that has been brewed with “a massive amount” of both coffee and chocolate before being aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels for an entire year in old gypsum mines 85 feet under the ground at a temperature of 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit. The stout was first released in 2004 and was part of Founder’s new Barrel Aged Series this year packaged in both four-packs of 12-ounce bottles as well as 750ml bottles.
Tickets for this year’s KBS Week will go on sale Feb. 2 via Ticketfly and includes only one option priced at $92:
- 3 four-packs of 12-ounce bottles
- 1 750ml bottle
According to a post on Founders’ website, interested parties can purchase up to two tickets for KBS Week, with customers able to pick up their bottles at either taproom from March 6-March 11.
In addition, both bottle options will be shipped to retailers in Founder’s 46-state distribution network soon after the event, with four-packs of 12-ounce bottles priced at $24 and 750ml bottles priced at $20 each.
