Here is a list of the beers by region:
Central (IL, IN, MI, OH, OK, WI):
3rd and Lager: Founders took two of their favorite hop varieties, Mosaic and Azacca, and brewed them into its latest lager for a gorgeous tropical fruit aroma and flavor. The malt bill features wheat for a smooth, rounded flavor while the perfectly clean finish comes courtesy of the lager yeast.
North Atlantic: (CT, DC, DE, KY, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA, VT, WV)
Simcoe the Underdog Pale Ale: Pale in color but long on flavor, this American Pale Ale features a unique blend of hops—led by classic Simcoe and “spiked” with Huell Melon—this brew packs in all your favorite tropical, citrus, fruity notes with none of the bitterness. A custom brewing water profile, toasty malt character, and proprietary house yeast tie this beer together seamlessly. Cheers to “Simcoe the Dog”.
South Atlantic: (AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN)
Low Hanging Fruit: This low hanging fruit is an incredibly crushable golden ale with passionfruit. Bright aromas of passionfruit leading to a clean finish you’ll want to pick over and over. At 4.8% this 14 karat golden ale is perfect for those long summer days.
Pacific: (AK, AZ, CA, HI, ID, MN, ND, NM, NV, OR, SD, WA)
Fantasy Football League Indian Pale Lager (aka FFL IPL): This beer is crisp, yet smooth, like a well-executed spin move that springs a back into a wide open secondary. A hop blitz delivers notes of tangerine, honeydew, pineapple and pine with the balance of confidence and finesse reminiscent of a quarterback dropping the long ball into the breadbasket of a streaking receiver.
Mountain: (CO, IA, KS, MO, MT, NE, TX, WY)
Draft Party Milkshake IPA: An unfiltered, abundantly hopped American-Style IPA brewed with lactose. Aromas of peach, pineapple and pear charge from the glass, while tropical fruit-like flavors dominate and a slightly sweet milk-sugar character balances the bitterness.
