Founder’s Brewery KBS

One of the rarest, hottest, most sought-after beer releases in the global beer world every year is the KBS Beer from Founders. 

Every year, Founders has a week-long in-store pickup and special Saturday release party at Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids, Michigan and also at their new Founders Taproom in Detroit, Michigan!

Founder’s KBS is an 11.20% Imperial Stout with chocolate and coffee flavors. It is cave-aged in oak barrels underground. About 4,700 barrels of KBS are stored in gypsum mines 85-feet beneath Grand Rapids for 14 months. 

It is the world’s most sought after bourbon-barrel aged beer.

Founders Detroit Taproom!

KBS is one of the highest rated beers of all time and you can ONLY PURCHASE KBS ON-SITE during this special extremely small-batch release.

Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids is a huge German-style beer hall in a former truck depot, complete with beer garden and patio in one of America’s greatest beer cities: Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Their new Founders Taproom in Detroit is not as big as their main HQ but it is very impressive and well-designed with both an indoor taproom and outdoor beer patio with fire pits and heat-lamps and more.
