Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout KBS Release

This is most certainly NOT an April Fools prank – we release KBS every April 1st!


FRIDAY, APRIL 1st – 8:30AM Release!

Yee-Haw!  It’s that delicious time of year again when Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) is released.

Thanks to you, we are the biggest Founders account in the northeast so we want to honor all you hard working folks with a special release!

We are opening extra early to make KBS available so you can get your beer and be swiftly on your way to work well before 9a!

The release is at 8:30AM, if you are here 30-ish minutes early, we predict there will be an 85%-ish (maybe higher!) chance you’ll be able to buy a 4pk but we cannot tell you how many people will be here.  Release is first come, first served.

Depending on the size of the line, we may start splitting 4pks in half at the back of the line so that everyone gets some.

Be one of the first 12 people in line and you will have the opportunity to buy 1 bottle of VINTAGE KBS!

From foundersbrewing.com:

What we’ve got here 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. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.

What happens when you take an award winning Imperial Stout, put it in oak bourbon barrels, and then age it for six months? One of the most epic beer tasting experiences you will ever have: ECLIPSE™.

     Imperial Stouts are noted for being very rich substantial beers, and FiftyFifty’s Totality Imperial Stout does not disappoint on this fact. Brewed in small 300 gallons batches, our brewers lovingly craft this masterpiece once a year. Made with the finest malts, hops, fresh mountain water and yeast, over 18 separate ingredients lend their unique character to this beer.

     To become Eclipse, Totality is then aged for a minimum of 180 days in oak bourbon barrels. This time spent adds a plethora of flavors to the already rich Imperial Stout. At first taste there is a large presence of dark chocolate, espresso and warmth from the alcohol of the beer. Oak barrel character then comes into play with hints of vanilla and coconut, followed by mild bitterness from the hops, and then a nice long lingering finish with hints of tobacco, dark dried fruit and more chocolate. Eclipse is a wonderful companion with dessert. A beer meant for contemplation best enjoyed in a snifter and with a friend.

     Because of the extensive brewing and aging process, Eclipse is only released once a year.
