Founders+Pewabic team up for limited run Cone 6 IPA
Swing by Founders Brewing Co.’s Detroit Taproom Friday evening to be among the first to order up a Cone 6 IPA, their piney limited-run collaboration with Pewabic being released that day.
The celebration is 5-9 PM Aug. 16, at Founders Taproom-Detroit, 456 Charlotte St. Pewabic Street Team mobile museum and raku kilns will be on hand to join in the fun.
The beer will only be served on draft, while supplies last, and will not be sold in bottles.
“It’s an honor to have had the opportunity to collaborate with one of Detroit’s most historic companies,” explains Founders Detroit Taproom Head Brewer Andrew Veenhoven. “Pewabic’s involvement in the community has been nothing short of exemplary over the past century, and the quality of their artistry has withstood the test of time. It was very exciting to work together in a creative environment to brew an awesome product that celebrates the roots of Pewabic, as well as their founder Mary Chase Perry.”
Folks at Pewabic were delighted to take part in the handcrafting of Cone 6, which references both the pyrometric cones used in kiln firings and Pewabic’s pine cone vase.
“We admire the passion and creativity that goes into Founders' award-winning ales and stouts, and can't wait to take a first sip of Cone 6 IPA," says David Moss, Pewabic Development Director.
Moss also expressed Pewabic's gratitude toward Founders' giving platform, The Big Pitcher, which is making a donation in support of the pottery's 501(c)(3) nonprofit mission to enrich the human spirit through clay.
Education Studio technicians Cassidee Downs and Alyssa Burnham were among the staff to join Founders Brewing Co.'s Taproom-Detroit Head Brewer Andrew Veenhoven as he crafted the limited-run Cone 6 IPA, available there beginning Friday Aug. 16.

José Arenivar-Gomez was on the job less than a week when he submitted a few of his ceramic sculptures for consideration in the annual staff and student exhibition. Not only did juror Kenyon Hansen select his work to be in the show, he named Not in the Mood best of show.
Now visitors can better experience the wide array of Pewabic tile profiles and color palettes in our newly renovated tile showroom, making it easier than ever to get started on an architectural job, no matter the style or size.
With the completion of the new tile pressing studio – and the expanded tour path that came with it – the time was right for the Pewabic Education Studio to introduce a workshop that better replicates Pewabic’s processes.
“The idea was to create a workshop that was a little more honed in to what we do here in our fabrication studio, right down to the molds being made by our master mold maker,” explains Lauren McCoy, onsite education manager. “Participants experience how we work downstairs in tile pressing and take home what they glazed here.”
