COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This long-time favorite brewers’ choice beer was created to hop us challenge expectations and keep us true. We now expose it to you. Using roasted barley, chocolate malt, and Midnight Wheat (tm), KGB has a color that is as dark as a torrid past, a body as full as a well kept dossier, and a taste a complex as a conspiracy theory.
