What do you get when a brewery that doesn’t settle teams up with a distillery that’s driven to create exceptional spirits, and they make a whiskey out of a renowned beer? The answer: something truly remarkable. Foundry Distilling Co. and Surly Brewing Co. have collaborated to create Furious Whiskey, distilled from the wort of Surly’s Furious IPA beer. This whiskey will be released on July 10th, 2021.
“This has been a fantastic collaboration with our Midwestern neighbor, Surly Brewing Company,” said Scott Bush, owner of Foundry Distilling Company. “We know whiskey enthusiasts will love this take on their iconic, hoppy, and aggressive Furious IPA.”
Surly’s Furious IPA’s aggressively in-your-face hoppy and citrusy nature has been distilled into an American single malt whiskey with every ounce of zesty citrus sweetness as its beer counterpart. Surly brought the beer’s wort to Foundry Distilling Co., where it was fermented, distilled, and aged for 24 months in new 30-gallon charred American Oak barrels to produce the whiskey. In total, Foundry has made 1,000 cases in a limited run that pushes the envelope of what makes a spirit unique.
