New Beer Release: Dankwood

We are thrilled to announce the third release in our Barrel-Aged Series:

Founders Dank Wood beer bottle 750mL


What do you get when a big, bold imperial red IPA meets an oak bourbon barrel? A palate stunner that’ll send your senses spinning or, as we like to call it, Dankwood. Rich caramel notes emerge from the depths of the IPA, highlighting strong malt character while the bourbon barrel-aging develops the complexity. A dank, sticky and slightly sweet sipper, Dankwood is the perfect alchemy of wood and hops.

Founders Dank Wood beer bottle 12oz

Dankwood starts shipping this week (of April 2) and will be available in 750mL bottles and 4-packs of 12oz bottles throughout our 46-state distribution network later in the month. Suggested retail price is $11.99/750mL and $14.99/4-pack 12oz bottles. You may remember this beer as barrel-aged reDANKulous, which was featured heavily in our taproom (and many of our bellies). 12.2% ABV. 65 IBUs.

Dankwood is the third release of 2018 in the Barrel-Aged Series, preceded by KBS and Backwoods Bastard, our newest year-round beer. There are three remaining Barrel-Aged Series beers to be announced this year.

  3. John G

    When should we expect to see it here in the Pittsburgh PA area?

  4. Mark Mireles

    Based on your release date above, I would have thought Dank Wood would have already made it to the Omaha area already. But both Hy-Vee and Beertopia have yet to see it. Is there a delay in shipping?
    I’m really looking forward to trying it!!!!!

    Thank you!
