Part of 2017’s Barrel-Aged Series, and arriving late January, Founders Brewing Co. introduces Frootwood.
“We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that have held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy stint, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long. Frootwood comes in at 8.0% ABV.”
Frootwood will be available in some states as early as January, with remaining states seeing it by February. In the taproom, they plan to release it on January 25, 2017 and will have a suggested retail price of $14.99/4-pack and $11.99/750mL bottle. That’s right, you’ll be able to find Frootwood in both 4-packs of 12oz bottles and single 750mL bottles. You asked, they listened!
