Pre-Filled Growlers & Crowlers (4/9)
Guava Salzig – 4.5% ABV: The addition of more than 600 lbs of pink guava puree to 200 gallons of our base gose adds an intense tropical fruit flavor and an increase to the acidity. As traditional as Salzig is, this is the opposite. Done simply because it is delicious!
Light & Beauty – 4.6% ABV: We took the recipe for Rings of Light and changed the yeast strain from a standard English yeast to the more expressive Conan strain. The result is a more yeast-centered aroma with peach and mango joining the Citra dry-hopping this time.
Sapwood Kellers Pils – 5.3% ABV: We Sapwood-ified a Pilsner, hopping it with German Saphir in the kettle and again in the fermenter. The herbal-citrus-spice hop character finishes with a touch of berry. It is mildly hazy as a result of being unfiltered and the high hopping rate.
Southern Lights – 5.6% ABV: Our newest pale ale is loaded with Vic Secret hops from Australia along with Citra from the Pacific Northwest. It is bright and tropical, with a hint of herbal, and a firm bitter finish.
Threat Level Noon – 5.7% ABV: This is the “little brother” to Threat Level Midnight. Still made with predominantly Scottish ingredients, built on a Golden Promise barley base. It has plenty of malt-sweetness to support the cocoa-coffee flavors from the roasted barley and chocolate malt. Mild bitterness, without much hop flavor other than woodiness from the Northern Brewer.
Sabro Says – 6.8% ABV: Sabro is a relatively new hop that doesn’t taste quite like any other variety. It has this unique, surprising fresh coconut character especially in the finish. For this extra-juicy IPA we paired Sabro with Lotus, another new hop with a tropical candied mango aroma. The result is creamy, rich, with a fun blend of tropical fruit and coconut.
Cheater Hops 11: Nelson – 7.1% ABV: The Cheater Hops IPA series was on a six-month hiatus, but it’s back! #11 is all Nelson Sauvin, double-dry-hopped, and available in 4-packs. Loaded with that weird gooseberry-dank-fruitiness of our favorite New Zealand hop.
Concrete Leaves – 7.9% ABV: For our first dubbel we stuck close to the classic style. We combined Belgian malts ranging from ultra-light Pilsner to raisiny Special B with caramely dark candi syrup. We employed a classic Belgian strain from a famous monastery-brewery to create a balanced peppered-banana character. Low hopping, as this beer finishes relatively dry compared to most of our beers.
Cryovolcano – 8.6% ABV: Citra and Mosaic are two of our favorite hops. Together they provide an intense aroma of green pineapple, melon, and grapefruit. We added 4.4 lbs per barrel double-dry-hopped. The result is one of our most aromatic DIPAs!
I Declare Bankruptcy! – 10.0% ABV: There is a stout crisis in America today. Too many stouts are just boozy-sweet backdrops for artificial-dessert flavors. Our answer is our roastiest, darkest, and most intense stout ever! Brewed in late 2019 and aged to allow the harsh edges to mellow into a smooth cocoa-mocha with some hint of char. Backed up by plenty of malt sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness.
Concrete Forest – 10.0% ABV: Belgian quads are malty, boozy, and fruity. For this recipe we combined three Belgian malts, two dark candi syrups, and the same Belgian strain we used for Concrete Leaves… plus a secret ingredient from England. The result smells like banana pancakes with maple syrup. Intensely malty (bready, caramelized raisin, and a hint of roast), without excessive malt sweetness.
** Variants are only available for growler fills to Sap or Founders club members in their Magic Growler. All other beers are available in growlers.
Bottles To Go
365.24 – 7.7% ABV: Each year on Earth last 365.24 days. Once every four years we combine the remainders to create a leap-day. To celebrate February 29th 2020, we blended this beer. The fresh green aroma reminds us of winter’s end and the new growth of spring. 365.24 is the culmination of two threads. First, a rice saison aged in gin barrels, vibrant and juniperus. Second, a sour golden ale aged in a wine barrel, acidic and succulent. The combination balances aromas of resin and earth, against tartness and oak. 500 mL bottles, $14/each.
