Founders Brewing Co.

Founders Brewing Co. has announced the latest KBS flavour and barrel-aged beer, KBS Hazelnut. The perfectly balanced and decadent drinking experience of KBS meets the classic taste of hazelnut. Taking this bourbon barrel-aged stout to a new level, KBS Hazelnut allows the existing premium coffee and chocolate notes to soar to new heights when accented by the nutty sweetness of hazelnut.

“Hazelnuts make for a great infusion into coffee so we decided to bring those flavours to our most epic coffee beer, KBS,” said Founders Brewmaster, Jeremy Kosmicki. “It really adds another amazing layer of depth to an already perfectly balanced and complex beer.”

KBS Hazelnut, which has an ABV of 12.0%, will be available on February 16th in Michigan. It will be available across Founders’ 50-state distribution footprint beginning March 1st. Pricing in the Founders taprooms will be $24/4-pack; prices will vary by market.
