Today Founders Brewing Company announced the release of their 15th anniversary barley wine, Bolt Cutter. This 15% ABV barley wine will be available in Founder’s own taproom through a ticketed release system November 11th through 16th, and will hit stores November 19th. Ticket’s go on sale online October 6th at 11am via Brown Paper Tickets.
Bolt Cutter 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, resulting from barrel aging some of it in bourbon barrels, some in maple syrup-bourbon barrels and some not at all (standard fermentation only). We’ve allowed the beer to mature in bottles and kegs since July so that it would be perfect for its release next month. Bolt Cutter pours a deep copper color and is best sampled at different temperatures to allow the flavors to unfold.
