Photos of the 7th Annual South Bay Tap Takeover

4 Giants IPA Added to Limited Series

Founders Brewing Co. has announced 4 Giants IPA as the latest addition to the Limited Series lineup. A mash up of four of the brewery’s favorite imperial IPA recipes, 4 Giants IPA (9.2% ABV) boasts aggressive bitterness balanced by a malty, sweet backbone while huge aromatics come courtesy of the seven American hop varieties.

“The world of IPA is constantly changing and evolving, but this beer really captures the essence of what I think is the classic Imperial IPA,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “Everything about it is totally in-your-face, but the flavor dynamics still manage to work together to create a well-balanced beer that is extremely fun to drink.”

4 Giants IPA will have a retail price of $10/4-pack and will be available in 12-oz bottles and on draft beginning on March 13 in the Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. It will available across the brewery’s 50-state distribution network beginning in April through June 2020. Please note that 4 Giants IPA will not be available on draft in Utah.
