Founders Brewing’s newest release in the Backstage Series arrives today in the Grand Rapids, Michigan taproom. Frangelic Mountain Brown features flavors of hazelnut coffee. Look for this beer making its way through the brewery’s distribution footprint this week.
Frangelic Mountain Brown is the 16th iteration in the series of popular brown ales–and it likely won’t be the last. The singular characteristic of this beer comes from the use of hazelnut coffees in the brewing process. The beer has distinct aromatics with sweet and nutty flavors beautifully balanced. Founders is known for its beers made with coffee (i.e., the Breakfast Stout series), but this is both the brewery’s first brown ale and its first beer brewed with hazelnut coffees to be bottled. It clocks in at 9% ABV.
Availability: 22oz bombers, limited Draft.
