For the very first time, their highly exclusive Kosmic Mother Funk (KMF) beer, a unique Belgian ale that they use as a blending base for some of their other beers, aged in giant oak barrels will be hitting some draft lines later this month. That’s right folks, KMF, which is fermented with multiple micro-organisms including Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and other wild things hits 6.4% A.B.V. and also features Belgian candi sugar to help add a bit of depth of flavor as well as to help round out some of the funky character.
