GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Founders Brewing has announced the release of Solid Gold, a new premium lager that will be available across the Founders national distribution network as of March 1, 2018. The starting point for this beer was a taproom classic, also called Solid Gold, that has been completely revamped by Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki.
“We built Founders on an attitude of no regrets,” shares Mike Stevens, Co-Founder and CEO of Founders. “An attitude of taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels. Never brewing to style, but always brewing what we want to drink. Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable golden lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients. Challenging what a lager can be? That’s something we won’t regret.”
“Solid Gold is a great starting point for people who are craft-curious,” adds Dave Engbers, Co-Founder and President of Founders. “It’s not over-complicated. It’s simple and well-rounded, full-flavored, but also light and crisp.”
The new Solid Gold recipe features lager yeast, corn and lemondrop hops for just the right hit of flavor. Made for sessionable drinking, Solid Gold will appeal to classic lager drinkers but adds a craft character, to balance natural sweetness with a touch of citrus. True to the lager style, Solid Gold is a beautiful non-filtered beer, golden in color, with a smooth aftertaste.
Solid Gold will be released in 6-pack cans, 15-pack cans and on draft throughout the entire Founders distribution network – that’s right, no bottles. It will have a SRP of $7.99/6-pack and $14.99/15-pack. 4.4% ABV, 20 IBUs. It will be available year-round as of March 1, 2018.
