Founder’s Brewing Company’s long awaited arrival to West Virginia taps has finally become a reality. Pies & Pints in Morgantown, W.Va. held a Tap Takeover Party yesterday, Sept. 6, that included 9 different taps from their Grand Rapids, MI brewery. Founder’s kicked off their West Virginia Launch Week with 9 taps that consisted of the All Day IPA, Dirty Bastard, Centennial IPA, Rubaeus, Red’s Rye IPA (Draft), Porter, Curmudgeon Old Ale, Imperial Stout, and Breakfast Stout.
With such a wide range of beers to choose from, it is very easy to find a pint that fits your palette perfectly. The Rubaeus, a raspberry beer, has a bright red color with a slightly tart yet sweet taste. The Dirty Bastard is a Scotch Ale with a higher ABV of 8.5% that provides subtle hops, plenty of malt, and flavors of smoke and peat to finish off a complex ale. Founder’s brought the Session IPA to the craft beer world many moons ago and with this IPA, they carved a path for light-IPA lovers that many craft breweries would soon be following. With a light ABV of .7%, the All Day IPA blends hops, malts, and grains in the natural brewing process to finish with a crisp and refreshing beer.
Bringing Founder’s into W.Va. is shaping an incredible year for craft beer for the state. After floods and economic crisis’s have devastated many parts of the mountain state, craft breweries are still pouring in because the bottom line is people will always drink beer, craft or not.
Apothecary Ale House & Cafe will be hosting a Founder’s Kickoff Party today, September 8, at 4 pm.
