GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Fifteen Grand Rapids bars and restaurants have joined together for KBS Week, hosting tapping parties for Founders’ Kentucky Breakfast Stout.

The annual limited release of the stout leads to long lines and beer tourists every year.

This is the second year of KBS Week, giving everyone a chance to get a glass of KBS, it’s expected to be even bigger than 2014.

Janet Korn of Experience Grand Rapids said they have sold more than 120 hotel packages for KBS Week.

Korn said it’s good sign for hotels and other local breweries and bars as they host tapping parties every week night during KBS Week.

“Founders helps open the door to these craft beer fans that are from all over the United States then all of our local breweries get to introduce their beer, their taprooms and establishments to those craft beer fans when they come in,” Korn said.

Founders’ KBS will be available through distribution in Michigan starting Monday, March 16.
