Founders Backstage Series #10! Believe it or not, the Grand Rapids brewery is nearly ready to unleash the tenth installment in their limited series of 750mL bottles, featuring the first lager they've brewed in over a decade. Dissenter is an Imperial India Pale Lager coming in at 8.7% ABV and 70IBUs.
This latest creation from Founders fits into the Backstage Series mold nicely, mashing up two uniquely tasty styles of beer (IPA and Lager) to deliver what aims to be a memorable craft beer experience. Dissenter joins other heralded beers in the series (which I'm sure you remember battling to track down) such as Canadian Breakfast Stout, Curmudgeon's Better Half, Blushing Monk, Doom and others.
Founders Dissenter will be packaged in 750mL bottles with a suggested retail price of $11.99, appearing throughout their distribution footprint beginning Friday, August 1. Check out the official Founders beer finder for more information.
It’s been a dozen years since we’ve brewed a lager—and, true to form, we’re going big with Dissenter India Pale Lager, our argument in favor of the potential for complex lagers. Brewed with a wide variety of tropical, citrus-forward hops, Dissenter clocks in at 8.7% ABV and 70 IBUs. Our ales are fermented at warm temperatures, but this lager is fermented cold, using a different kind of yeast. The longer brewing process used for lagers gives Dissenter an exceptionally clean finish, allowing you to appreciate the clear beauty of the hops as you would a well thought out, eloquent dissenting opinion. We’ll let this one speak for itself.
