We might as well rename October as Founders Month, for the beloved Michigan brewery’s New Mexico debut is certainly generating a lot of excitement. For anyone who missed the initial announcement, the Kickoff Party is Wednesday, Oct. 7 at Nob Hill Bar & Grill, with a second KBS release party the following week on Oct. 14. To make sure people were well-motivated to attend the former and not just the latter, NHBG sent us this press release.
To make sure the Founders gets the proper New Mexican welcome, we are adding something special for the people who attend the draft party. If you attend the draft party and drink a beer or two, you will have the first crack at KBS on tap a full hour before anyone who decided to forgo the party. This is Founders’ and Nob Hill’s way of saying thank you for coming to support a new brand release in the state and offer a little bonus to those who can come out. This is the 2015 KBS and we only got one keg.
We look forward to seeing everyone at both of the events and showing Founder’s that they made the right decision in coming to this state.

Basically what that all means is you will get a ticket, of sorts, from attending the kickoff party and then you will bring that to KBS night to make sure you get a glass. (Note: You still have to pay for said glass; no free beer, people.)
Until those distant days arrive, NHBG still has some great beer events every Wednesday. Tonight is the Green Flash Draught Invasion, featuring Green Bullet, Styrian Golding Single Hop, Pacific Gem Single Hop, Double Stout, Hop Head Red, and Alpine’s Hoppy Birthday.

Now, Nob Hill Bar & Grill is not the only place benefiting from Founders’ arrival. As it turns out, Heimat House, one of the Crew’s favorite culinary hangouts, is going to team up with Founders for a special beer dinner on Friday, Oct. 9. For $65 per person, you will get five special courses paired with five different Founders beers. We await the full list of food and beer for this event, but fear not, when it becomes available, we will post it.
UPDATE: As you can read in the comments section below, it appears that Founders’ Santa Fe debut will also come on Oct. 7 at Fire & Hops Gastropub. Luke and Julie will be so happy. We will have more on that event when the information is available.
Until the day Founders arrives in our hands, we will just have to carry on.
