Founders Brewing Co. has announced their 2020 availability calendar, confirming changes and additions to the brewery’s lineup, including several new beers, the return of some fan favorites, and new package types.
Available in March 2020, Founders Brewing will release the newest addition to the year-round lineup, Unraveled IPA. A juicy IPA brewed with traditional hops in addition to lupulin powder, an innovative hop product that separates lupulin from the hop flower. Unraveled IPA will be available in 6-pack cans and on draft next March across the brewery’s distribution network.
“It’s always a great pleasure to introduce the upcoming years’ brand calendar,” says President and Co-Founder Dave Engbers. “We love the feedback from the beer enthusiast community, and we try our best to listen to what people want most. 2020 will bring new pack sizes, brand new beers and increased availability of some of our old favorites. Innovation has been a common thread to Founders’ growth over the years and creating new styles – and putting a Founders twist on others – has kept our beer enthusiast friends guessing.”
The brewery will add 4 Giants IPA, a mashup of four of their imperial IPA recipes, to the Limited Series lineup. Previously only ever released in the brewery’s taproom, it will be available from April through June, in 4-packs of 12-oz. bottles and on draft.
In addition to current package types of 6-pack, 15-pack cans and draft, Founders will add several Centennial IPA package types to their lineup. These new package types will begin shipping in February.
The brewery is also bringing back some fan favorites to the lineup: Más Agave returns to the Barrel-Aged Series in May. Underground Mountain Brown returns to the Barrel-Aged Series in September. Pilsner and Mosaic Promise will follow Civilized Brut in the Seasonal lineup in April and August, respectively. Green Zebra returns to the Limited Series in May. Devil Dancer will return as the first release in the Mothership Series.
The 2020 calendar also reflects that KBS will return in February. For the first time, it will be available year-round in 4-packs of 12-oz. bottles, and on draft, across the brewery’s distribution footprint.
