Founders Brewing Co. Kicks Off the New Year with Return of Blushing Monk

blushing_monk_12oz_bottleFounders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has officially announced that Blushing Monk will return as a Limited Series release on January 4.

Originally created by the brewers at Founders to serve as “a nod to the ancient monastic art of brewing”, the occasionally released, fan-favorite Blushing Monk is a Belgian-style Ale brewed with “a ridiculous amount of raspberries” and fermented with a Belgian yeast strain.  These two featured ingredients beautifully unite as “fruit-forward ferment aromas and spice esters combine with . . . a tart and luscious, raspberry-jam character.”  Coming in at 9.2% ABV, you can consider Blushing Monk to be “Rubaeus older sibling – more intense, slightly larger and just a little bit more mature.”

Blushing Monk will officially release on January 4 and is scheduled to hang around through March 2019.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Founders Brewing Co.’s distribution territory.  Prost!
