KBS: 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.

Q & A:
Can I purchase more than one ticket?
This release features a limit of one ticket per person, across the entire five day release. We will only honor one ticket per person, and any additional tickets will be voided without refund. Each time a ticket is purchased, the purchaser is responsible for attaching an "Attendee Name" to the ticket. While it may be possible to purchase more than one, we will not honor duplicates, and all tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable. Therefore, we suggest you do not.
Can I use the same credit card to purchase tickets for different people?
That is entirely up to you! The policy is "one ticket per person", not one ticket per credit card. Multiple tickets purchased with the same credit card is permitted, as long as those tickets are being purchase for different people, by assigning different "Attendee Names" to each ticket at the time of purchase.
Do I have to be 21 years old to purchase a ticket?
Yes. Since all tickets are both name and date specific, and are not tranferable or refundable, you do need to be at least 21 years of age to complete your bottle purchase. All ticketholders will be required to show a legal ID in person, while purchasing their beer. Failure to do so will result in a voided ticket, without refund.
What if I can't make it to my specific release date?
Since all tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable, if you are not sure you can make it to your specific release day, do not purchase a ticket.
Can I sell my ticket?
No. To help battle scalping and ticket hoarding, all tickets are both name and date specific, and cannot be transfered or refunded. Tickets are only valid if used by the "Attendee" assigned at the time of purchase.
What are the pick-up times and location?
You may redeem your ticket to complete your bottle purchase only on the date listed on your ticket (DAY #X), between 11:00AM and 9:00PM here at our brewery in Grand Rapids, MI. Please follow the signs upon arrival to locate the bottle pick-up area, which will be separate from our Taproom, Deli and Store.
Will you be offering KBS on tap during the bottle release?
KBS on tap debuts at our KBS Draft Release Party on Saturday, March 22 (DAY #5). It will not be available here at Founders prior to this party. However, there are 15 local bars and restaurants participating in KBS Week this year, each of which will feature a tapping of KBS March 18-21. See www.kbsweek.com for more info.
Do I need a ticket to atttend the Draft Release Party on March 22?
Nope! All ticket sales are for bottle reservations only. Our KBS Draft Release Party will take place all day long on Saturday, March 22 in our Taproom. While it is limited to Ages 21+, there is no entry fee or reservations available. Access to our Taproom will be on a first come, first served basis.
