Founders - Lizard of Koz Blueberry Imperial Stout Coming To Bottles

27 August 2016

This morning you get your first look at a new beer heading to bottles from Founders.  This is Lizard of Koz and it is an imperial stout brewed with blueberries, chocolate and vanilla.  This beer is also aged in Bourbon barrels before being packaged in 750ml bottles (and kegs below).  I believe the “Koz” portion refers to brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki and perhaps it’s a play on Wizard of Oz?  Look for the Lizard of Koz to crawl in at 10.5%-AbV.   This is likely to be part of the Backstage Series but stay tuned for more details.
This update from Founders:

The beer may still be aging underground in bourbon barrels, but we’re ready to share the news…

Our second and final Backstage Series beer this year, Lizard of Koz, is coming this December.

This one is near and dear to our hearts. Our Brewmaster, Jeremy Kosmicki, wanted to make the birthday of his little sister, Liz, a special one. So he did what he does best and brewed a stout using a few of her favorite ingredients: fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla – aged in bourbon barrels to round out those beautiful flavors. Liz was floored and we think you will be too.

Lizard of Koz has made an appearance on our taproom draft list before, but this is the first time we’ve bottled it. Look for it to hit shelves in December. Until then, stay tuned toTwitter, Instagram and Facebook for more details.
