Founders Brewing Releases 2019 Blushing Monk

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Back by popular demand, Founders Brewing Co. has announced the return of Blushing Monk as the first release of the 2019 Limited Series. Think of Blushing Monk as Rubaeus’ older sibling – more intense, slightly larger and just a little bit more mature.

Blushing Monk (9.2% ABV) is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain in a nod to the ancient monastic art of brewing. Fruit-forward ferment aromas and spice esters combine with an abundance of raspberries for a tart and luscious, raspberry-jam character. Blushing Monk will be available in all markets on draft and in bottles (4-packs of 12oz bottles) beginning January 4 through March 2019. Please note that price will vary by market.
