Founders Announces Year-Round KBS, Unveils New Espresso Version
Good news, KBS lovers. You'll soon be able to get Founders Brewing Co.'s Kentucky Breakfast Stout year round, and they're coming out with a new extra-espresso version.
Founders shared the news Monday. Starting February in 2020, KBS will available in 4-packs of 12oz bottles and on draft everywhere it's distributed.
New to KBS? Here's Founders' description:
KBS is a big imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged to perfection. Incredibly silky and full-bodied with notes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee and charred oak. ABV should be around 12%"
Previously KBS was usually available starting in late winter/ early spring until that year's batch ran out.
Founders also announced that for the first time, they are bottling first-ever variant: KBS Espresso.
While KBS is already brewed with coffee, this new version gets an extra kick when it’s aged on espresso beans after being removed from barrels, resulting in a "fresh and snappy coffee twist" on KBS.
The 12% ABV KBS Espresso will also be available in February 2020, in 4-packs of 12oz bottles, 750mL bottle, and on draft.
