In addition to Founders Brewing Co., draft selections from 18 other breweries will be available for sampling. The complete menu and full list of participating breweries are outlined below. Co-Founder and CEO of Founders Brewing Co., Mike Stevens, will be on hand to meet guests, discuss the brewery and hold a Q & A session. The pouring will begin at 3:30 p.m. and KBS Stout will be tapped at 5 p.m.

Craft beer aficionados and novices alike may purchase tickets to the tasting and tapping party for $40 in advance ($50 at the door) which includes 9, five-ounce beer samples of any draft beer, one KBS sample and a commemorative snifter glass.

Limited Release, KBS Stout 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. ABV: 11.2%; IBUs: 70; Availability: April.
