We now know the third release in Founders’ Brewing Co.’s Barrel-Aged Series for 2017, and it is a beer that fans have seen before.
The beer is Doom, a 10 percent ABV imperial IPA that has been aged in bourbon barrels. The IPA was first released as a draft-only option in 2009 before debuting in bottles as a member of the Grand Rapid, Mich.-based brewery’s Backstage Series and uses Founders’ Double Trouble IPA as its base.
“Imperial IPA and barrel-aging – two of our greatest strengths coming together to create the masterpiece we call Doom,” said Dave Engbers, co-founder and president of Founders, in a press release. “This is a huge beer with a big attitude. We are so happy to bring this beer back for those who have been vocal in asking for its return and we look forward to introduce it to those who haven’t yet had the opportunity to try it.”
Doom will join five other beers being released at part of Founders’ Barrel-Aged Series this year:
According to Founders, the newest incarnation of Doom will be packaged in both 750ml bottles($11.99) as well as four-packs of 12-ounce bottles ($14.99) and is expected to released at the brewery on May 12, with bottles shipping to retailers nationwide “shortly thereafter.”
