If you’re here, we probably don’t have to tell you all about Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) and how it ages in bourbon barrels for a year in caves beneath Grand Rapids. Or how it's frequently included in lists of the best beers in the world. In fact, you may have been involved in crashing our web server (knock on wood) in years past because you wanted to figure out how to find some KBS. Unfortunately you probably also know that tickets to the KBS bottle release have been sold out.
Luckily, we have you covered. Just like last year, Beer Up will be keeping you up to date on KBS events as the information develops. If you are interested in our KBS Beer Review we have you covered there as well. In fact not only are we a fan of the KBS, but our viewers chose Founders in a field of 32 brewers during our March Madness Beer Up Bracket.
