Orpheus Coffee Minotaur, aged in whiskey

Orpheus Coffee Minotaur

Orpheus Coffee Minotaur releases on August 3rd. A new sour ale by the Atlanta based brewery.

Since day one, Orpheus has been expanding their barrel program. Finally, there is enough barrel room to release Orpheus Coffee Minotaur, an whiskey oak-aged sour ale.

Brewery founder Jason Pellet tells Beer Street Journal that the base beer is sort of a sour amber, brewed with Golden Promise malt and Munich malt. The coffee is from Java Lords, found on Euclid Avenue in Atlanta. In total, the beer spent a total of 5 months in Heaven Hill & Jack Daniels Single barrels.

The story of Orpheus is a story of rebirth, first in his journey into and out of Hades, and finally in the transmigration of his soul into the body of a swan. We pay tribute to this rebirth with ever beer we put into barrels, to be transformed by its time in the wood as something new. Orpheus Coffee Minotaur

Orpheus Coffee Minotaur is a 22 ounce bottle release, available as a souvenir on the tour on August 3rd.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Coffee. Barrel Aged. Whiskey)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: August, 2016

Founders Pale Joe is this year’s ArtPrize beer

Founders Pale Joe

Founders Pale Joe will join the brewery’s ArtPrize lineup of beers in September.

Artprize is an international art competition, held annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The winners are decided by both public vote and expert panel. The Founders Brewing taproom is one of the display venues.

Founders Pale Joe is the brainchild of brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. The base beer is a pale ale, infused with lightly roasted coffee from local Ferris Coffee and Nut Co.

Your eyes will tell you one thing, but your palate will tell you another. Light in color but full in flavor, this golden ale features notes of gently roasted, fruit-forward coffee. Pale Joe features a special blend of high-end Ethiopian coffee expertly roasted by our hometown neighbors at Ferris Coffee and Nut. It’s the love child of your favorite iced coffee and, well, beer.

The label was chosen from a pool of submissions from the brewery employees. The winning submission came from Lead Cellar Operator and Kendall College of Art & Design graduate, Aaron Rossel.

Founders Pale Joe will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft in Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, New York City and Boston, MA. Some draft will be found across the rest of the brewery’s distribution network.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Coffee)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
