Founders Brewing Releases Mucho Lupu Juicy IPA

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Founders Brewing Co. has announced Mucho Lupu as the next release in the Mothership Series. Brewed in the spirit of juicy IPAs, Mucho Lupu features four types of American hops: Mosaic, Azacca, Simcoe, and Amarillo. Dry-hopped with traditional hop pellets together with cryo powder, an innovative hop product that separates lupulin from the hop flower, this IPA is incredibly flavorful and aromatic. Wheat and oats provide a smooth backdrop to carry all those wonderful hop characteristics. ABV will be around 6.5%.

“I love IPAs that are bright, clean and well-balanced,” says Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “Mucho Lupu was born out of experimentation with advanced hop products and a desire to create a beer with the low bitterness and huge hop aromatics and flavors of a juicy IPA, while maintaining a beautifully brilliant appearance.”

The taproom Mothership Series is an ultra-limited, brew team favorite beer series only available at the Founders Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. Whether it is an old standby brought out of retirement or an experimental new style, it’s sure to go quickly. The previous Mothership beers have included: Cerise, Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, Panther Cub, MF Donkey Stout, Sleeper Cell and Red’s Rye IPA.

Mucho Lupu will be released in 6-pack bottles and on draft from both taproom locations beginning on June 7. Mucho Lupu will have a retail price of $10.00/6-pack. Please reach out to Amanda Davis (amanda@gregoryvine.com) for more information.
