One of Founders Brewing Co.’s most popular releases in 2019 is returning later this year, but fans will have to be in the brewery’s home state to get it.
Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout 2020 is an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. As the name suggests, the new beer uses the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based brewery’s Imperial Stout as its base.
The stout debuted in bottles last year as the fifth addition in Founders Mothership Series, which consists of releases that have been “brought out of retirement” or “experimental new styles.” That version of the beer was available for carryout exclusively at the brewery’s taprooms in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
According to a post on Founders’ website, Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout 2020 will be packaged in 750ml bottles and is scheduled to be available exclusively at retailers across the state of Michigan “around November 1.”
