Some new releases hitting the shelves this week and an update on Founders much anticipated release of their KBS. Hitting shelves, (or already on) this week we have a one from Stone. Old Guardian should be on your shelves currently. Here is the description of Old Guardian from Stone:
A beautiful bold barley wine. Massive malt and hop notes. Silver Medal winner at the 2000 Great American Beer Festival in the Barley Wine category. Gold Medal winner at the 2002 World Beer Championships in the Barley Wine Category. Look for it in the first quarter of each new year. Can be cellared or enjoyed upon its release.
Later this week be on the lookout for Founders All Day IPA. If you don’t see it by the weekend it should be hitting by the following Tuesday unless distribution gets delayed. Brewery description of All Day IPA:
The beer you’ve been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatic and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.
A lot of beer lovers are anticipating the release of KBS which I’ve heard can be hitting shelves as early as the middle of March. A Hy-Vee in Cedar Rapids has reported that they will be getting their shipment in by April 1st. I will let you know more when I hear about the earliest time that it will be available. One more note on Founders, Double Trouble will only be a 2 month release this year and should be available in May/June.
Anything I missed? Let me know! Cheers!
