ArtPrize is an independent art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids Michigan, it’s a radically open forum in which artists can discuss art and compete with each other for a number of different prizes. Luckily for us these artists also are the inspiration for an annual brew from our good friends at Founders Brewing Company. This years entry in to the ArtPrize series of brew is Mosaic Promise, an American IPA brewed with a single malt and a single hop. This brew pours with a beautiful golden color with a light white head. The aroma that comes off the beer is exceptionally fresh with a pine aroma that, like the beer, is refreshing and clean. The beer clocks in at 5.5% ABV and 50 IBUs and manages to be remarkable complex with minimal ingredients. Mosaic Promise has some citrus and tropical notes that lend to how refreshing and crisp the beer is and with a relatively dry finish. The brew makes for an all around enjoyable experience.
The proceeds for Mosaic Promise, and every annual ArtPrize beer, go towards funding future ArtPrize projects and at about $10 a 6 pack Mosaic Promise is very reasonable priced. This beer is a limited release so I wouldn’t expect to see it on shelves for all too long. It’s definitely worth picking up though, you get a great beer and get the comfort of knowing that on some level you are contributing to the arts.
Overall Brew Score 4/5 stars
