A brand new ale from Founders Brewing Co. borrows “elements from both high-end craft cocktails and moody jazz clubs.”
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), that beer will be Velvet Rush 2021, an 11.1 ABV bourbon barrel-aged imperial brown ale. The new release will be conditioned on a combination of coffee, chocolate, milk sugar and vanilla extract before being packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
Velvet Rush 2021 will be one of the beers in Founder’s 2021 Barrel-Aged Series, which is made up of various styles of beer aged in different barrels and has included past creations like KBS 2020, Backwoods Bastard 2020, KBS Espresso 2020, Más Agave 2020 and Underground Mountain Brown 2020.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
