One of the rarest, hottest, most sought-after beer releases in the global beer world every year is the KBS Beer from Michigan’s very own Founders Brewery.
Every year, Founders courageously hosts a dual release at Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids, Michigan and also at their Founders Taproom in Detroit, Michigan!
Founder’s KBS is an 12.3% 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.
They are releasing KBS via online ticket sales one week earlier for Detroit and Grand Rapids than the rest of the USA.
