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.

We encourage you to show up early. No, we do not take seat or table reservations.
For the past five years we have been quietly storing (in our climate controlled beer cellar) vintages of Founders KBS in both kegs and bottles and are now happy to share with you the fruits of our patience and labor.

This session will be led by Dante’s JP Mills and Mr. Dave Goldstein from Founder’s Brewing Co.
