A Grand Rapids brewery has big changes planned for one of its barrel-aged beers.
Founders Brewing Co. is adding KBS as a year-round addition to its 2020 calendar.
The previously seasonal stout will be available all year in four-packs of 12-oz bottles and on draft across Founders’ distribution footprint beginning in February of next year.
KBS is an imperial stout brewed with a large amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged. Tasting notes include vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee and charred oak. Its ABV should be around 12%.
The brewery will release its first KBS variant as well. KBS Espresso ups the already coffee-rich beverage by adding espresso beans, provided by Ferris coffee, to the aging process.
KBS Espresso will launch in February 2020, coinciding with the year-round release of KBS. It will be available in four-packs of 12-oz bottles, 750-ml bottles and on draft across Founders’ distribution footprint.
