Stumbled across this article and thought I'd share, as I hadn't heard anything about it up to this point...

At the Grand Rapids International Food & Wine Festival last weekend, we spotted the Founders Brewing Company booth and its sign with a peculiar label on it.
In addition to its regular lineup, there was a small label for something called "Nemesis." We asked Founders vice president and director of marketing Dave Engbers, who was working the booth, about it. He said he could say nothing, other than he was one of five people in the world who knows what it is (Thanks!).
This afternoon, KB called Founders head brewer Jeremy Kosmicki to find out more. He said: "I'm really not at liberty to give anything else out" (which, for the record, is a terrible phrase to use when the person asking the question is actually named "Liberty"). It was reported in June that Nemesis would be out in December, but Kosmicki said that won't happen now. Whatever it is, don't expect to see it on tap or in bottles until at least late February or early March.
"It'll be crazy and delicious," Kosmicki said.
It remains a popular topic for Kosmicki.
"It seems like every conversation I get into about beer, it comes up," he said.
From what Kosmicki said, this will be an annually-launched, limited-release beer made in whichever style he chooses.
Unable to crack this egg, we also tried contacting Founders head cellarman/Communist Jason Heystek. His only response was a denial and this comic, which is "hung ... on the wall at the brewery concerning this beer."
