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 is the first of six barrel-aged beers we’ll be distributing throughout 2017. It will be available in some states as early as January, with remaining states seeing it by February. It will be available in our taproom beginning January 13 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. In fact, the entire Barrel-Aged Series lineup will be available in 750mL bottles and 4-packs of 12oz bottles!
