Founders Mosaic Promise

We promise that you will love this beer!

From 2013-2018, Founders Brewing Company has the honor of being the official brewery of the largest art competition in the world, ArtPrize, that takes place in their hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Each year they brew a beer inspired by ArtPrize. In 2014, they brewed the unique Mosaic Promise.

Mosaic Promise showcases 2 unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt. The traditional barley’s depth of flavor and the versatility of the hops’ bittering flavor and aroma characteristics are the strong pillars that comprise the structure of this clean, rich, golden beer. Founders can brew complex beers with the best of them, but they recognize that there’s also beauty in simplicity. The beer clocks in at 5.5% ABV and 50 IBUs.

This brew has made its way to NJ in bottles and draft and we can promise you that it won’t be around for long! The team at Founders saw such positive response when they first released Mosaic Promise that they decided to temporarily bring it back. Did you know that NJ is the only state on the east coast where you can find this delicious brew? We are thrilled to be able to offer this beer to all of you, so keep an eye out! You won’t be disappointed.



Such a beautiful label too…
Grand Rapids artists Matt and Elizabeth Kolenda, Adrianne Hollemans and Maria Orr make up Kolenda Art Glass. They submitted the stained glass piece “Ninkasi” as an ArtPrize 2013 entry that showed in the Founders taproom. Ninkasi is the ancient Sumerian goddess of beer, and Kolenda depicted her with traditional mouth-blown antique glass that was both painted and stained in vibrant colors. In their artists’ statement, they said, “Just as new, creative brewers everywhere are challenging the age-old custom of brewing beer, ‘Ninkasi’ puts an exciting spin on the common perception of what stained glass form is and was ‘supposed’ to be.”

The Founders Family fell in love with Ninkasi and purchased the piece. She’s now a permanent installation in our taproom.
