Bottle tickets for 2017 KBS will be available for purchase via on February 18 at 11am EST. This year, we are offering two package types: junior and regular.

March means one thing for us: the Michigan and taproom release of KBS. If you’re thinking about making the journey here to Grand Rapids to pick up your bottles, join us at the many KBS tappings across town or celebrate at our taproom release party, here’s the info you need to get started.

Please note this information will be shared publicly on on February 10. This is a chance for Cadre members to mark their calendars and book their hotels first. Please keep an eye on for more information.
