Next year, some fans of Founders Brewing Co.’s Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) will get to try it before the rest of the nation.

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.

As in years past, 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.

This year’s KBS Week took place from March 6-11, and included two different ticket options:

Regular Ticket ($132 plus ticketing fees):

  • 4 four-packs of 12-ounce bottles
  • 2 750ml bottles

Junior Ticket ($84 plus ticketing fees):

  • 2 four-packs of 12-ounce bottles
  • 2 750ml bottles

According to a post on Founders’ website, information on how to purchase bottles for KBS Week 2018, locations of tappings and information on the taproom release parties are still being finalized.
