FOUNDERS BREWING CO. TO RELEASE DOOM
The imperial IPA aged in bourbon barrels is the third installment in the brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 12, 2017 – Founders announced today that they will release Doom, an imperial IPA aged in bourbon barrels, as the next release in the Barrel-Aged Series. Founders last released Doom in 2013 as part of the Backstage Series of beers, and its return is highly anticipated.
Doom may be impending but that doesn’t mean you have to fear it. A collision of worlds, the intense hop character of our imperial IPA mingles with the warm vanilla and oak notes imparted from time spent in our favorite bourbon barrels. Like all good things, Doom comes to those who wait.
Doom is the third release of 2017 in the brewery’s esteemed Barrel-Aged Series, preceded by Frootwood and KBS. In addition to Backwoods Bastard, there are two remaining beers yet to be announced in the series this year.
Doom will be available in the taproom beginning on May 12 with remaining states seeing it shortly thereafter. Doom will have a suggested retail price of $14.99/4-pack 12oz bottles and $11.99/750mL bottle.
“Imperial IPA and barrel-aging – two of our greatest strengths coming together to create the masterpiece we call Doom,” “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.” – Co-Founder and President, Dave Engbers.
Founders will announce the remaining two releases in the Barrel-Aged Series later in the year.
