22 May 2015

KBS Shield

The burning desire for great beer is getting crazier by the day here in the UK. However there are scenes over in the US that can only be described as pure beer hysteria. Where tickets sell out in minutes and queues thousands strong form outside of a brewery.

But then this isn’t any old scene. This is the scene for “The Best Beer in America”*.

This is Founders KBS.

James Clay are extremely excited to share this beer with UK beer drinkers. Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish.

In the words of Uncrate, "other bourbon barrel coffee stouts are imitators - Founders KBS is the innovator".

The release date is Saturday 30th May 2015 with the map below showing where you can find the beer.

PLEASE NOTE: Sales will be strictly limited to one 4-pack per customer to allow as many people to experience this exceptional and rare beer as possible.

About the beer

KBS (11.2% ABV) is Founders most infamous beer and can be found included in lists of the best beers in the world published by sources ranging from RateBeer to Business Insider.

It’s inherently a limited release because it ages in bourbon barrels for a year in the caves beneath Grand Rapids, Michigan. In past years, beer enthusiasts have crashed web servers with the traffic caused by your interest in this beer and Founders have even had people camping outside the brewery in frigid temperatures so they can be first to get their share of this great beer.
