Founders Brewing Co. Celebrates Fresh Hop Season with Release of Harvest Ale

harvest_taproom_stories_1Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has officially announced that its annually released Harvest Ale, a Wet-Hopped IPA, will enter full distribution in early October.

Brewed each year as an “ode to the beauty of American hops grown in [the brewery’s] backyard,” Harvest Ale is a Wet-Hopped Ale featuring copious amounts of wet hop cones that “arrive within hours of being picked by some of [Founders Brewing Co.’s] favorite local hop growers.” After working “around the clock to transform the wet hops into Harvest Ale” (7.6% ABV), the brewing team’s commitment and dedication pays off by producing “an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes.”

Harvest Ale is available now at Founders Brewing Co.’s Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms and is scheduled to enter distribution by early October 2019.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of the brewery’s nationwide distribution network.  Prost!
