Bangerz Only

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the second Tuesday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it’s gone it’s gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

 

This month’s Banger is:

 Founders Brewing Co. {Grand Rapids, MI}

KBS

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout w/ Coffee and Chocolate  – 7.5%

 

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.
