A lottery for tickets to purchase one of the most sought after barrel-aged stouts in the world is now open at this website.
The beer in question is Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.’s Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout (KBBS) 2019, an imperial stout brewed with coffee aged in bourbon barrels that is being released durning an event at the Decorah, Iowa-based brewery on Dec. 7. The stout was last seen in Dec. 2018, when approximately 1,000 hand-waxed and hand-numbered 12-ounce bottles bottles were sold for $100 each to winners of an online lottery with a limit of one bottle per person.

This year’s version of KBBS will be released on Dec. 7 packaged in hand-waxed and hand-numbered 12-ounce bottles that will carry a retail price of $100 each and a purchase limit of one bottle per person.
There will be two different sessions available to ticket holders on release day:
- Session One: 11-1 p.m.
- Session Two: 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Past incarnations of the Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout have been packaged in 12-ounce bottles sold exclusively at the brewery and have sold for more than $1,000 on the secondary market.
According to a post on Toppling Goliath’s Twitter page, interested parties are now able to enter their names in an online lottery to purchase a $10 ticket that entitles them to one bottle of KBBS 2019. Sign-ups will close on Sept. 24 at 11:59 p.m. CST and winners will receive an email on either Sept. 26 at 9 a.m. or Sept. 27 at 11 a.m CST.
