Founders Brewing Celebrates 15 Years with Bolt Cutter Barley Wine Ale
We are humbled to be celebrating our 15th anniversary next month. And we brewed a beer in celebration of it! Bolt Cutter, our 15th Anniversary Ale and the last installment in our 750mL Backstage Series this year, is a cellarable barley wine with an ABV of 15%. Dry-hopped with a mountain of Cascade hops, it’s balanced by a malty sweetness and spicy complexity. We’ve allowed the beer to mature in bottles and kegs since July so that it would be perfect for a November release. Bolt Cutter pours a deep copper color and is best sampled at different temperatures to allow the flavors to unfold. Read more about the beer, its release, and the story behind its name on our blog.
