Founders Brewing Co. has announced another addition to its 2021 Barrel-Aged Series.
That beer is Más Agave Prickly Pear, a 9.7 percent ABV “cocktail-inspired” imperial gose brewed with agave and sea salt before being aged in tequila barrels and then conditioned on “a healthy dose” of prickly pear extract.
As the name suggests, the new creation uses the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based brewery’s Más Agave as its base, an imperial gose-stye ale brewed with agave, lime and sea salt before being aged it tequila barrels for “just the right amount of kick” that debuted last year.
According to Founders, the label art for all of the Más Agave releases was inspired by Day of the Dead imagery and commemorates the elaborate altars built to honor deceased loved ones. In addition, the new beer will be one of six different members in the brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series next year, a list that also includes the recently announced Panther Cub 2021.
Per a post on Founders’ website, Más Agave Prickly Pear will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to ship to retailers across the brewery’s 46-state distribution network in May 2021.
