Tomorrow morning, one of the country’s most anticipated annual beer releases will happen: Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout). At 7AM, four hours prior to opening, there will probably be 150-200 people already in line. You may find it crazy to wait in line for four hours as this isn’t Cedar Point, but you could compare it to the opening of a new super tall and fast roller coaster. People who wait in lines like this are fellow beer lovers, full of cheer and friendliness as they generously share the special beers they bring to drink. And yes, I’ll be bringing a little something special myself.
If you’re hoping to get your hands on a bottle or two of KBS, an early alarm needs to be your best friend. The brewery will have only 300 cases available for sale and once it hits the delivery trucks Monday morning, the stalking begins. People will be following the distribution trucks as they deliver something that would give the release of a new iPhone a run for its money. And if you simply want a taste, the tap room doors open at 11AM and it will be available on draft. Enjoy!
And to celebrate the release, I cracked open a bottle from last years batch. Fantastic!
