This morning I have your very first peek at a returning beer and a new series from Founders Brewing in Grand Rapids, MI. This is Nemesis and it will remain a barleywine-style ale brewed with roasted malts (and no shortage of hops) that will roll in at a slightly lower 11.2%-AbV & 75 IBU. This will be Release 01 in the Bottle Shop Series and you’re looking at the 12oz bottle. Stay tuned here for full release details.
This 30 Nov 2020 update from Founders:
This morning we’re bringing you news of a brand new series that’s sure to be a hit with tried and true craft beer fans everywhere. We’re also here to let you know about the first release in that series. Introducing:
Bottle Shop Series #1: Nemesis
They don’t make ‘em like they used to. Or do they? The Bottle Shop Series is a tribute to when craft brewers first pushed the limits of brewing. When beer drinkers sought big flavor and refined quality above all else. When beer packaging was nothing more than a blank box with a label stuck on the side. This series is for you: the beer connoisseur who settles for nothing less than the very best.
To kick this series off with a bang we’re bringing back an oldie-but-goodie, Nemesis:
What’s your Nemesis? Ours is a barleywine-style ale brewed with roasted malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter, booming flavor. Pouring with a slight and subtle mahogany hue and a multitude of flavors that melt on your tongue – this is one Nemesis you’ll feel good about keeping around. 11.2% ABV.
Look for Nemesis in 4-packs of 12oz bottles as part of the Bottle Shop Series in April 2021.
