Founders Day at Hopjacks Filling Station

Saturday, May 3rd, Hopjacks Filling Station will be hosting Founders Day. A reservation gets you one Beer Flight that includes four 4oz draft pours of some great Founders brews (descriptions courtesy of Founders Brewing):

Curmudgeon (Old Ale) - BeerAdvocate 90 / RateBeer 99

Think classic seafaring ports, local pubs, and weathered old fishermen. This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich, malty delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.

Smoked Porter - BeerAdvocate 90 / RateBeer 99

Brewed for the first time when our brewers were experimenting on our new three-barrel pilot system, we decided this one was too good to keep to ourselves. This 8% ABV smoked robust porter is brewed with a combination of beechwood-smoked barley and oak-smoked wheat malt along with a generous helping of chocolate malt. This blend delivers a beautiful balance of chocolate and smoke character that’s flavor-forward without being overwhelming.

KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) - BeerAdvocate 100 / RateBeer 100

What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.

Rübæus - BeerAdvocate 87 / RateBeer 94

Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandy—Rübæus is Founders’ way to celebrate the season’s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.
