We’re happy to share that Blushing Monk, a Belgian-style ale brewed with raspberries, will be returning to the Limited Series lineup. 4-packs of 12oz bottles begin shipping in January 2019 to our entire distribution network.

    interesting. is this the first volley to get away from 15-packs? i always liked that it was easy to find and not mashed in with the 12packs of the other guys’ stuff. a consideration perhaps.

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      Solid Gold is the only brand moving away from 15-packs.

  2. Ben

    I love the All Day 15 packs – wont be buying bottles! Can’t take bottles to the beach!

  3. CBS in 12 oz 4 pks …

  4. Chris V

    So CBS 4-pks in the USA in 19??

  5. Kristi Swancutt

    Is Backwoods Bastard going to remain year round again in 2019?

  6. Elliott

    Any chance you’ll be bringing Smitten back? That was my all time favorite!

    • Founders Brewing Co.

    Thank you for bringing back Imperial Stout, likely the best beer from you guys. December 2019 can’t come quickly enough!

  9. Ssoden

  12. DaveMKE

    Thank you for bringing back Blushing Monk! Any plans to bring out more Belgian style beers?

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      Not at this time, but we never say never!

  13. Brian

    Why would you do CBS 3 yrs in a row, this 2nd yr was way harder to get ppl to pay 25 a btl, yr 3 I think will be worse. What happened to this beers limited availability?

  14. Koncerned

    Love your beer, but I don’t see one of the all-time best…Is Sumatra Mountain Brown off the schedule for 2019?

  15. Jeremy

    Did I miss Sumatra Mountain?

  16. JD

    You have a beautiful calendar unfortunately it’s very hard to read and understand on my phone screen.
    Is it possible to get the information to be easier to see on a small screen.

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      We linked the PDF version so it should be easy to open on a phone. Did you try to click the image? That should open the PDF.

  17. Mark C

    No Sumatra Brown? Major bummer…

  18. Mitzi

    Yes! Blushing Monk returns!! 😎 I will have to stock up since it will only be out for two months.

  19. Amy

    I really like the Parka Porter. Will that be coming back?

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      Hmmm.. was that a taproom exclusive?

  20. Anthony

    CBS in 4 packs ….. Please .

  21. Dave

    Why is there an asterisk next to KBS on the calendar?

  22. Rick

    What about Mango Magnifico, I had it once and can’t ever find it, many places say they have had it but don’t ever seem to get it on a regular basis?

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      It’s not returning in 2019. It may in coming years however!

  23. John Gress

    I hope that Crumudgean’s better half and dankwood will be continued. Sad to hear that barrel runner won’t return.

  24. Chuck Thielmann

    I look forward to this every year wets my taste buds for the coming releases. Chuck

  25. Mark

    I don’t see Sumatra Brown on list. Best brown ale made!!

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      Not this year! That’s not to say it won’t be back in the future.

  26. LDavid87
