Leaping lizards, there’s berries at Founders!

Leaping lizards, there’s berries at Founders!

Indeed, we’ve found berries and lizards, oh my. Founders Brewing Company has some brews that you really need to check out while you can. We’re not talking about Backwoods Bastard or Porter, oh no. We’ve certainly covered those before. Instead, we’re talking about the amazing brews that are getting folks talking about the creative genius of the Founders brewmaster. Did you say lizards?

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

If you’ve ever tried a delicious barrel-aged brew, you’re likely wondering why we would even ask this question. In fact, we’re kind of wondering as well. After all, without the delicious brews like Backwoods Bastard, we’d have one less brewing style to enjoy! However, there are those folks that feel barrel-aged beer is “unsafe”.

Barrel aging: Great taste, nice flavor

Barrel aging: Great taste, nice flavor

When it comes to craft beers that really make us sit back and ponder their flavor, barrel aging usually does the trick.  While there are plenty of cask aged brews out there that do make us take an extra moment to enjoy the taste, barrel aging provides a complex blend of flavors that can’t be topped.  Something about the oak, or the spirit within, sets in motion a journey that continues from the first sip to the last.
