"Grand Rapids, MI – There has been rampant speculation and questions surrounding Founders Brewing’s upcoming Nemesis Series beer #1 (Founders Nemesis 2009). Thanks to a Virginia beer distribution rep, we now know what the beer is.
He posts: “Description: The 2009 release of Nemesis is best described as a Maple Bourbon barrel aged wheat wine holding 12% abv and 70 ibu’s. The barrels have been resting deep in the mines of Grand Rapids for nearly 9 months and have been most effective in developing a great product.
The Bourbon barrels we used in this creation were once used to age Maple syrup from northern Michigan, then emptied, and procured for our use in aging this beer. The combination of American oak, Kentucky Bourbon, Michigan Maple syrup and our golden/tan wheat ale has provided a delicious malty sweet ale distinctive of strong vanilla and bourbon notes.”
It will be released in the next 2-4 weeks according to the representative.
For those not attune to what the Founders Nemesis Series is, it is a new line of one-offs that the brewery plans on releasing each year. This first beer was scheduled for release in December though there were delays.
If there was a chart of top 20 most-anticipated beers in 2010 list, this would undoubtedly be on it. Stay tuned for release details . . . " -- Beernews.org"
