Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has officially announced that All Day Vacay will join the brewery’s Seasonal portfolio in April 2021.
Arriving as the “first line extension from the original session IPA – All Day IPA – in Founders Brewing Co. history,” All Day Vacay is an American Wheat Ale “that packs in flavor; stone fruit and tropical hop aromas combine with citrus and slight bready notes, to finish with moderate sweetness and a soft, refreshing mouthfeel.” Coming in at a super sessionable 4.6% ABV, All Day Vacay is “the perfect companion for any type of adventure.”
“We are continually looking for interesting and unique beer alternatives for different occasions. All Day IPA was a real game changer for us at Founders,” said President and Co-Founder, Dave Engbers. “We all love spending time outdoors, so we challenged ourselves to find a light, refreshing and delicious wheat extension to the All Day franchise. With all our brands, it’s about balance. Finding the right combination of malted barley and specialty grains balanced with the bitterness and aroma of hops is truly the artistry of creating a great beer.”
“I was really thinking about flavors that capture the essence of summertime, the beach and vacations in general,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “In the spirit of original All Day, Vacay would have to be perfectly well-balanced and completely refreshing. A light, crisp body for easy drinking, low hop bitterness and a generous amount of wheat malt to keep it soft on the palate and hints of citrus to brighten up the whole experience.”
All Day Vacay is set to debut in April and will hang around through September 2021. You can expect to find this new Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 15-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Founders Brewing Co.’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
