I spoke with Chris, the owner of Liquor Cabinet (Hilltop Road, St. Joe, Michigan), yesterday regarding the new release of Founders All Day IPA and he had some great news for me…
All Day IPA is described as a “session ale” and that’s precisely what it’s meant for. At 4.7% and 42 IBUs, this beer has great hoppy floral and citrus characteristics that finishes crisp and clean, giving you the ability to drink more than one or two. I had this for the first time on tap at Founders Fest last June as my palate cleanser between Blushing Monk and Kaiser Curmudgeon (now Curmudgeon’s Better Half), and was excited to find that it is now a year ’round offering in 6-packs. Unfortunately for us Hoosiers, this beer is not available in our state, but for those that live in the South Bend area, you can likely find this at Crocker’s in Niles, or Liquor Cabinet in Saint Joseph.
Come to find out, Liquor Cabinet has 5 cases of this sweet nectar in the back already, delivered earlier yesterday! Due to Founders rules, he is unable to sell any of it until Monday, the 6th. To the best of my recollection, he said the price is $10/6, which is certainly fair in my opinion. I will definitely be there Monday to pick up a couple of sixers!
Cheers to another great beer from one of my favorite breweries!
