kbs blushing monk release 2015

Founders Brewing Co. is continuing to make 2015 a year for fans of craft beer to remember, most recently with their weeklong KBS release fresh on the heels of the Backstage Series return of the Blushing Monk Belgian raspberry ale. Blushing Monk makes a welcome return being the beer to first launch the series back in 2011 and one that fans have been clamoring for in the four years that have passed since Founders last brewed it. In making my rounds this year, I enjoyed my first snifter of Blushing Monk in Holland at Hops at 84.
