Founders Underground Mountain Brown will be Barrel-Aged release #4

Founders Underground Mountain Brown

Founders Underground Mountain Brown will be the 4th release in the brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series this August. 

Brewery fans know this beer under a different name, Barrel-Aged Sumatra Mountain Brown. Founder takes an imperial brown ale, adds Sumatra coffee, and ages it in bourbon barrels in their caves for nearly a year. This release follows new margarita-inspired Mas Agave, presumably on shelves now.

FOUNDERS MAS AGAVE, BARREL-AGED SERIES #3

A team of malts complements the bold Sumatra coffee perfectly, while time spent immersed in oak creates layers of depth and complexity. A celebration of the barrel, the bean and everything in between.

Style: Imperial Brown Ale (w/ Coffee. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 750ml, 12oz, Draft. Limited Release.

Coffee double barrel-aged Oskar Blues JAHVanilla Ten Fidy debuts in April

Oskar Blues JAHVanilla Ten-Fidy

Ten-Fidy has a pretty epic reputation in craft beer. This April, you are going to see it a whole new way, in the form of Oskar Blues JAHVanilla.

This edition of Ten-Fidy is a blend of bourbon barrel-aged stout and double bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, with HotBox Roasters cold brew coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans. The brewery aged it slightly until the flavors blended well. Last year’s release was not blended with the double-barrel.

“The blending of double-barrel aged FIDY and barrel-aged FIDY this year is pretty special. It adds to the complexity and depth of JAHvanilla. Then we hit it with premium vanilla and cold brew and the beer hulks out with flavor.” Tim Matthews, Head of Brewing Operations

Oskar Blues JAHvanilla Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy Imperial Stout will only available in the brewery’s Longmont, Colorado and Brevard, North Carolina taprooms on April 20th.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel Aged. Vanilla Beans. Coffee.)
Availability: 19.2 Cans
Debut: 4/20/19

Monday Night Fistful of Cake Can

More pastry stouts. Monday Night Fistful of Cake is coming to the brewery’s Westside Atlanta location on March 8th.

The chocolate in this beer comes from the malt, the coffee from local roaster Batdorf and Bronson, and a “budget-breaking” amount of vanilla beans.

Look for Monday Night Fistful of Cake in 16-ounce cans at the brewery on March 8th, hitting limited distribution shortly after.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Vanilla Beans.)

Peppers & Bourbon: Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls returns on Valentine’s

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls,  a small batch release series returns to spotlight on Valentine’s Day.

Truly a beer name you won’t forget, with a flavor you won’t forget, Turtles on Pterodactyls is first and foremost in imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. When the beer was first released 4 years ago, that’s exactly what it was. Now there’s more turtle and more Pterodactyl. Birdsong has added cinnamon, coffee from Central Coffee Company, cocoa nibs, and serrano peppers into the recipe.

One day, friendly Dino turtles were caught in a volcanic corruption – the dangers time to be slow and steady. Fortunately, the vigilant Pterodactyl Rescue Squad noticed just in time! The dactyls swoops down with a thunderous call! And hitched the turtles to the rescue vests. Hot lava covered the earth but the turtle dudes were safe and sound. Want to be a pterodactyl? Harness their brave and gentle spirits but sharing this beer with a dinosaur loving friend. Cowabunga!

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls is a part of the brewery’s Take Flight Series. 16-ounce cans are available in the taproom when it opens on February 14th.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Cinnamon, Cocoa Nibs. Serrano PeppersBarrel Aged. Bourbon.)

2 Row, Marris Otter, Roasted Barley, Chocolate, Caramel 60, Carmel 120, Black
