Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Death By Flapjacks, a pancake-inspired Porter, in late June 2021.
Dropping as the “second entry of 2021 in their series of over-the-top Death By beers inspired by cult classic Death By Coconut Irish Porter,” Death By Flapjacks is an English-style Porter that “hits you with a huge maple wake up call, jacked up on syrupy goodness. Smooth vanilla, lactose, and a subtle hint of nutmeg complement the honey and crystal malts in this English Porter to provide the pancake-like vehicle for massive maple flavors. The addition of fresh lemon peel gives a quick palate reset so you can take another crack at this short stack flapjack brew.” Coming in at 6.5% ABV, Death By Flapjacks is guaranteed to be a “big-time breakfast beer.”
“Brewing a pancake beer makes it all the more socially acceptable for me to never turn down a beer with breakfast when it’s offered,” said Juice Drapeau, head brewer for Oskar Blues Brewery. “The lactose and maple combination makes Death By Flapjacks a completely unique drinking experience great for early mornings and late nights or when late nights become early mornings.”
Death By Flapjacks is scheduled to debut on Father’s Day (June 20, 2021) and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas and throughout the rest of Oskar Blues Brewery’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
