Founders Adds New KBS Flavor with Release of KBS Hazelnut

Founders Brewing Co. has announced the latest KBS flavor 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.           

“Hazelnut makes for a great infusion into coffee so we decided to bring those flavors 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 in 4-packs of 12oz bottles and on draft on February 16th in both the Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. It will be available across Founders’ 50-state distribution footprint beginning March 1. Pricing in the Founders taprooms will be $24/4-pack; prices will vary by market. 

Crafting legendary barrel-aged beers is an exercise in patience. We start by brewing complex, world class beer worthy of time in a barrel. Then, our experience and years spent mastering our craft means we know exactly when it’s been aged to perfection. After one sip, you’ll know – it was worth the wait.
