Founders Brewing Co. has announced their 2019 availability calendar, confirming changes and additions to the brewery’s lineup, including the return of a couple of fan-favorites.
Beginning in 2019, Founders will be adding the following Solid Gold package types to their lineup:
“Solid Gold has more than doubled our first-year expectations and has driven us to meet an ever-growing demand,” said Co-Founder and CEO Mike Stevens. “We’ll be adding additional pack sizes to accommodate more occasions and will continue to push into the American domestic premium lager space with a brand consumers can connect with.”
After successful pleas from fans, the following beers will be added/return to the lineup. Blushing Monk, a Belgian-style ale brewed with raspberries, kicks it off in January 2019:
“We’ve featured a lot of beers in our lineup over the years and, as a result, have had to bench some favorites to make room for new styles,” said Co-Founder and President Dave Engbers. “The silver lining is that we then get the opportunity to reintroduce some of these beloved styles. Most often it’s because we listen to you, our fans, who lobby for us to bring something back. Well, your voices have been heard and we’re happy to share that Blushing Monk and Imperial Stout will return to the Limited Series in 4-pack bottles. Plus, CBS will return in 2019! As always, enjoy, share and celebrate their return with a friend.”
The 2019 calendar also reflects the addition of 12-pack bottles of All Day IPA. Those will start shipping in late January/early February. Additional beers, including the remaining Barrel-Aged Series beers, the third Limited Series beer and all taproom Mothership Series beers will be announced throughout the year, closer to their release dates.
Established in 1997 by two craft beer enthusiasts—Dave Engbers and Mike Stevens—with day jobs and a dream, Founders Brewing Co. brews complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics and tons of flavor. Founders ranks among the top 10 largest craft breweries in the U.S. and is one of the fastest growing.

Located in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, Founders is a proud member of the Michigan Brewers Guild.
