Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has officially announced that it will be bringing Frangelic Mountain Brown back for a limited, encore release in early December 2019.
Revived in large part due to the enthusiastic pleas of Founder’s Brewing Co.’s faithful following, Frangelic Mountain Brown is a “deliciously sweet and nutty” Imperial Brown Ale brewed with hazelnut coffee. Coming in at 9% ABV, Frangelic Mountain Brown is back to prove once again that “your new favorite coffee drink is a beer.”
“Finally, we get to bring back one of my favorite coffee beers of all time,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “Frangelic Mountain Brown was last distributed in 2012 and, get this, was the very first brown ale we ever bottled! Not long ago, we asked our super amazing enthusiast club, the Cadre, what beers they’d like to see in the lineup and Frangelic Mountain Brown was one of their top picks. So, of course, we had to make it happen.”
Frangelic Mountain Brown is scheduled to hit Founders Brewing Co.’s Grand Rapids Taproom on December 6 and will enter distribution later that month. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of the brewery’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
