We know it’s only Monday, but here’s a reason crack open a cold one: It’s National Beer Day! If you’re looking for the perfect beer to take the edge off, consider one of these two appetizing ales from Founders Brewing Co.
Curmudgeon Old Ale is blended with molasses and then oak-aged for a strong, rich and malty flavor. The result is a smooth and drinkable beer, perfect for a rich dinner on a chilly spring night. But get it while you can! This beer is only offered from April to June.
Is light beer more your thing? Try Founders’ best-selling All Day IPA, which was developed due to the need for a full-flavored IPA with a lower ABV (only 4.7%!). What you’re left with is a complex, aromatic beer with a very clean finish. The IPA is offered year round, and is also available in 15-can packaging (the first major craft brewery to do so), which they are rightfully calling a “Brewer’s Dozen.”
