Each fall, the Founders brewhouse looks like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by local hop growers. The result is an annual mainstay since the early-2000s: Harvest Ale.
Founders uses 100% locally grown Michigan wet hops in this year’s batch of Harvest Ale. Founders sources from a number of Michigan hop farms, including MI Local, Hop Head Farms and Pure Mitten.
Harvest Ale (7.6%) is an aromatic and bright IPA with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes, the company says.
The price will vary by market.
Harvest Ale is best enjoyed as fresh as possible and is available now.
