Founders Brewing Company is best known for its Kentucky Breakfast Stout and the fanatical following it garners. But, the brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series has been grabbing attention lately, too. Along with Frootwood, a cherry ale, and KBS, Founders has released Backwoods Bastard, a Scotch ale. Now the brewery has announced that it has revived its 2013 IPA, Doom and has had it hidden away in Bourbon barrels.
The barrel-aged version of Doom will be available in distribution by the end of May.
See the official press release below for more details.
