Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, MI) will re-introduce Black Rye in 2015. The last time this offering was available was in 2006.
Black Rye is a dark ale brewed with a lot of rye malt, and hopped with a blend of German and American hops.
“Because of how quickly the craft beer enthusiast community has grown, most people drinking craft beer and even Founders beer today have never tried Black Rye,” said Dave Engbers, co-founder and vice president of brand and education at Founders Brewing Co. “Officially, this beer is a re-introduction. But for most, it’s a new Founders beer.”
Founders Black Rye will be available in 12oz/ 4 packs starting in January. It will precede the April release of Rubaeus in the seasonal lineup.
