Founders KBS Release Update: New to Shelves this Week

kbs I haven’t been able to get a firm answer from other liquor stores but I can confirm that John’s Grocery will be having a release of Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout on Tuesday,  April 2. The plan right now is for a 5:00 p.m. release with a limit of 1 four pack per customer. If you here of any other releases from Hy-Vee, etc. please drop me a line.

More from Founders: Eastern Iowa will be seeing both Devil Dancer and Doom. The time of arrival is still unknown at this point but I will keep you posted on that. Below is a description of each brew:

Devil Dancer*Devil DancerFounders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil. 112 IBUs

*Doom – Doom is unleashed when Founders’ award-winning specialty doomImperial IPA, Double Trouble, is aged in bourbon barrels for four months to create a distinct flavor experience. So, while Double Trouble is brewed to turn your world upside down, Doom is brewed to tear it apart: pungent hops conspire with boozy bourbon notes to send your senses spinning.

rampantAlso new to shelves this week is New Belgium’s Rampant Imperial IPA which is replacing their Belgo IPA.
