(Grand Rapids, MI) – Though Portsmouth Kate the Great was all the buzz last week, Founders Brewing is releasing a behemoth beer of its own this weekend.
Founders plans to hold a launch party for Kentucky Breakfast Stout on Saturday, March 13th, at the brewery. The party starts at 9:30 pm with a couple bands playing.
In the past, bottles have arrived at a handful of stores early though I’m not so sure that is the brewery’s intention. I checked Twitter for KBS or “Kentucky Breakfast Stout” and there are some sightings in New Jersey and Georgia so far. There’s a thread up at Beer Advocate for sightings as well.
This is the week to start asking your local stores if they know when they are getting it; if you’re a loyal customer (or even if you aren’t), see if they will reserve you some since some stores don’t even put this out on shelves. Many stores only get a case or two (if any) but it’s possible that, with the brewery expansion, that Founders made more of this. I haven’t confirmed though I’d be curious to hear from distributors as to whether they are getting more this year.
