PC Pils and Sumatra Mountain Brown Make Seasonal Return for Founders Brewing Co.

FoundersPCPILSFounders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) recently announced that PC Pils and Sumatra Mountain Brown have officially returned to shelves and taps as a couple of “spring offerings that highlight [the brewery’s] depth of production.”

First introduced in 2016, PC Pils is back this year by popular demand and with “a more extended run from April to August 2017.”  This Seasonal offering reimagines the classic Pilsner style thanks to a recipe loaded “with three flavor-packed American hops: Chinook, Cascade and Centennial.”  Clocking in at a reasonable 5.5% ABV, PC Pils is “pleasantly crisp, . . . perfectly clean, . . . and profoundly crushable.”  PC Pils is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles (suggested retail price of $9.99), 15-packs of 12 oz. cans (suggested retail price of $17.99) and on draft at craft beer-friendly restaurants, bars and retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of the Founders Brewing Co. distribution area.

Also making a return after debuting in 2016, Sumatra Mountain Brown – a 9% ABV Imperial Brown Ale made with Sumatra coffee – acts as “a bold addition” to the brewery’s Specialty Series.  This brew begins with a base comprised of “a team of malts including Caramel malt for sweetness, flaked barley for dense foam, a bit of Chocolate malt for its deep color and Aromatic and Munich malts to add even more depth.”  These malts are then balanced with the use of “German and Perle hops”, and rich Sumatra coffee is then added to take “this perfectly balanced Brown Ale to a decadent level.”  Sumatra Mountain Brown is available from May until June in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles (suggested retail price of $11.99) and on draft.  You can find this Specialty release available at select craft beer establishments found within Founders Brewing Co.’s distribution footprint.
