Founders Brewing Co. will release the latest beer in its Crafted in Michigan Collaboration Series in its taprooms later this month.
The Grand Rapids-based brewery said this week it will begin selling Mid Ride in 750-milliliter bottles beginning 11 a.m. Friday, March 25, in its Grand Rapids taproom and 4 p.m. the same day in its Detroit taproom.
The Crafted in Michigan Collaboration Series is a limited quarterly release of taproom-exclusive beers produced in partnership with featured Michigan collaborators.
Created with Detroit Bikes, Mid Ride is a New England-style pale ale brewed with Citra hops.
“You don’t need to be an avid cyclist to appreciate Mid Ride … but it sure doesn’t hurt,” Founders said. “(This brew) is perfect for pit stops on group rides, long-distance treks to parts unknown or even a bikeless night at home — but that’s no fun at all, is it?”
Founders’ Detroit taproom will host a day-of release party that will include merchandise and display bikes to go alongside the new beer. The brewery also plans to give away a custom Founders Crafted in Michigan bike designed by Detroit Bikes to one customer who attends the event.
