Founders Brewing Co. to Introduce Más Agave Grapefruit Alongside Re-release of Más Agave in 2020

mas_agave_grapefruit_12oz_bottleFounders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has officially announced that it will release Más Agave Barrel-aged Imperial Lime Gose in tandem with its first variant, Más Agave Grapefruit, in May 2020.

First introduced in 2019 and back to reclaim the summertime slot in Founders Brewing Co.’s Barrel-Aged Series, Más Agave is a margarita-inspired Imperial Gose “brewed with agave, lime and sea salt and then aged . . . in tequila barrels for just the right amount of kick.” Ridiculously smooth and easy drinking for 10% ABV, Más Agave is “a party in a bottle.”

New for 2020, Más Agave Grapefruit takes Más Agave to a new level after it is removed from the barrels by getting “a dose of fresh grapefruit juice to ramp up the tanginess and to pay homage to [Founders Brewing Co.’s] other favorite tequila-based cocktail, the Paloma.”  Also coming in at around 10% ABV, Más Agave Grapefruit is “sweet, salty, and mouth-puckeringly delicious.”

Más Agave and Más Agave Grapefruit will both release in May and are scheduled to hang around into July 2020.  You can expect to find both of these Limited Release offerings available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 750ml bottles 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 area.  Prost!
