Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) recently sent out a teaser to inform their fans that Underground Mountain Brown will officially launch in August as the fourth release in this year’s Barrel-Aged Series.
Previously introduced as the taproom-exclusive known as Barrel-Aged Sumatra Mountain Brown, Underground Mountain is an Imperial Brown Ale that has been brewed with “earthy Sumatra coffee” and then aged for a year in Bourbon barrels in the “caves below Grand Rapids.” Crafted to be a true “celebration of the barrel, the bean and everything in between”, Underground Mountain Brown finds harmony as the malts of the Brown Ale base “complement the bold Sumatra coffee perfectly, while time spent immersed in oak creates layers of depth and complexity.”
Underground Mountain is scheduled to debut in Founders Brewing Co.’s Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms on August 16 and distribution will follow later that month. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 750ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Founders Brewing Co.’s expansive distribution area. More info to come. Stay tuned! Prost!
