Founders Detroit Double IPA

detroit_douple_ipa_fbtwitter_3-1-1-1024x614Double IPA | 8.9% ABV

Pushing tropical aromatics such as mango and pineapple to the edge of pungent, Detroit Double IPA raises the bar to what consumers expect in this beloved hoppy style. Healthy portions of American adjuncts, as well as lightly kilned crystal malts, contribute a slight sweetness as well as provide a delicate backbone to showcase the dank resinous hop oils within. Detroit Double IPA pours a light orange accompanied by a white frothy head that bursts with hop aromatics. This beer drinks smooth and finishes crisp with a piney bitterness. 8.9% ABV.

Available in 12oz bottles and on draft


7/1 | Founders' Marvelroast

2020_marvelroast_featuredGolden Ale | 8% ABV

Take in the wonder that is the marvelous – ahem – “marvelroast” new addition to our coffee beer lineup. We started with an imperial golden ale and brewed it with coffee, vanilla and cocoa nibs. But it doesn’t end there, folks. Milk sugar added during the brewing process lends a smooth and sweet finish, making this a delicious treat reminiscent of your favorite iced coffee drink.

7/4 | Ecliptic Brewing Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale

Ecliptic-Brewing-Hoku-lele-Tiki-Inspired-Tropical-Ale-LabelTropical Ale | 8% ABV

Taking its name after a shooting star in Hawaiian, Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale was a beer that the brew team at Ecliptic has a lot of fun in developing the recipe. Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale uses Sabro, Azacca, and Mosaic hops that are dosed with the tropical essence of pineapple, passionfruit, guava, coconut, almond and macadamia nut, along with a dash of cinnamon. This tropical themed summer beer sits at 8% ABV and 16 IBUs.

 

Available in 16oz cans

 

7/7 | Hi-Wire Lifeboat Golden Lager

ucLager | 5.5% ABV

In a collaborative effort with Asheville neighbor Zillicoah Beer Company, Hi-Wire Brewing conceived a decocted lager to unlock the full spectrum of malt flavors resulting in a crisp, clean, “ocean-worthy glugger” to assist in navigating these wild times. Lifeboat Golden Lager (5.5%) pairs well with excellent sunshine and friendship from a distance.

 

Available in 16oz cans

 

7/10 | Sour Smoothie Very Berry

ucTart Wheat Ale | 5.5% ABV

The fourth edition in Hi-Wire’s Sour Smoothie Series received a ridiculous amount of raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry to create an over-the-top fruited sour beer with a balanced sourness and refreshing finish. 

 

Available in 16oz cans
