Some notable changes to, well, note are:

  • Breakfast Stout & Backwoods Bastard will be available year-round. Yep, that’s right, you won’t have to wait for either of these going forward! Well, sort of. Breakfast Stout should be available without a break in availability into the New Year, while Backwoods Bastard will have a several-month lapse in availability. Not bad!
  • It’s not indicated on the calendar, but we will be offering Solid Gold, All Day IPA, Rubaeus and all of our seasonal beers, which include Mosaic Promise, Azacca IPA and PC Pils, in 6-pack cans.
  • DOUBLE TROUBLE RETURNS! You’ve asked and we are delivering. Our notorious imperial IPA makes its return in May 2018.
  • We are launching a brand new taproom carryout series called the “Mothership Series.” These beers will range from classics like the inaugural release, Red’s Rye IPA, to experimental new styles. They will only be available for carryout in Six-pack bottles at our taproom locations.
  • We’re saying goodbye to some favorites, like Imperial Stout, Curmudgeon and reDANKulous although we’d like to think of it as ‘until we meet again.’ Because, let’s be real, we bring back old favs all the time!
  • Green Zebra was such a hit we’re bringing it back around. This gose-style ale brewed with watermelon and sea salt was named one of VinePair’s 50 best beers of 2017!
  • The Barrel-Aged Series returns and, with it, four new releases we’ll share with you throughout the year.

Introducing the Mothership Series!

This series will be available for carryout only at our taproom locations and will include three releases throughout the year, from old favorites to experimental new styles. We’re kicking it off with a beer we had to retire from bottles a few years ago based on its short shelf life: the longtime standby, not to mention hands-down Founders employee-favorite, Red’s Rye IPA!

Red’s Rye IPA will be available for carryout at both of our taproom locations beginning in February 2018.

The return of Double Trouble!

Double Trouble is an imperial IPA that features an abundance of hop character. It will be available from June to July in 4-packs of 12oz bottles across all 46 states you can currently find our beer- your summer just got better and it hasn’t even begun.
