New Beer Release: DKML

We are pleased to announce the next beer in our Barrel-Aged Series and, get ready, because this one is a 14.2% ABV doozy:

Founders DKML beer bottles

Here you have what could be the first malt liquor worthy of a glass. Typically a slighted style, we thought we would class it up with a stay in the wood and a healthy dose of dry-hopping. A huge hit of corn gives this one a smooth sweetness while its time spent aging in bourbon barrels will give you reason to share. Be warned: this one’s a pry-off, not a twist-off.

This is the first time we’ve released DKML, though our Brewmaster, Jeremy, has taken the recipe through multiple trial batches over several years. It marks the fourth release in our Barrel-Aged Series, preceded by Frootwood, KBS and Doom.

DKML will be available in 4-packs of 12oz bottles and 750mL bottles beginning in our taproom on July 1 and the remainder of our distribution footprint – which now includes 46 states – shortly thereafter. It will have a SRP of $11.99/750mL bottle and $14.99/4-pack 12oz bottles.

It will be available throughout our entire distribution network, which now includes 46 states
