Founders Brewing Co. announces Champagne-like Civilized Brut as first 2020 seasonal beer

Brew available this year

Founders Brewing Co.'s Civilized Brut will be available this fall.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A bubbly, Champagne-like beer will be Founders Brewing Co.'s first seasonal brew next year.

The Grand Rapids-based brewery compares the Civilized Brut IPA to a brut Champagne.

"Nothing says refreshment like a dry, sparkling, hop-forward IPA," said brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. "Civilized Brut has just the right amount of bitterness and hop flavor to not overwhelm the clean and dry finish of this beer, while the high effervescence makes it feel like a party in every sip."

The 6 percent ABV beer will be available in the Founders Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms Oct. 30. It will begin shipping in November 2019 in six-pack cans, 15-pack cans and will be on tap.

The brew will precede Pilsner and Mosaic Promise in Founders' 2020 seasonal lineup
