PORTLAND, OR ./OREGON CITY, OR . – Who didn't grow up with frosted flakes for breakfast as a kid? Now enjoy the same goodness as part of “Catch A Tiger” Double IPA, a collaboration from Portland's Montavilla Brew Works and Oregon City's Coin Toss Brewing Co.

The one-of-a-kind 10 barrel batch features 25 pounds of Frosted Flakes cereal mashed with pilsner malt and five other specialty grains. Horizon, Cascade, Chinook, Idaho 7 and Simcoe hops give this big beer a bitter bite with aromas of citrus, pine and orange marmalade. The beer comes in at 7.2% ABV and 69 IBU. For those who are wondering, it’s GRRRRRRRRREAT!

Catch A Tiger will make its debut at Montavilla Brew Works, 7805 SE Stark St., on Sept. 16; and at Coin Toss Brewing, 14214 Fir St., on Sept. 18.

Michael Kora, Montavilla owner and brewer, and Tim Hohl, Coin Toss owner and brewer, both originally hail from Detroit and have been kicking around the idea of a collaboration beer using Michigan ingredients for some time.

“It’s my goal to eventually work with all the great brewers in Portland who have relocated from Michigan,” explained Kora. “Since Battle Creek, Mich., is home to Kellogg's, Frosted Flakes seemed like a fun opportunity to celebrate our shared Michigan-roots.”

“Michigan has a pretty amazing craft beer scene of its own,” said Hohl. “As a couple of guys from Detroit, we wanted to give a fun nod to our home state while making a Northwest style IPA our customers would appreciate.”

The brewers would like to give a shout out to Dan Mills at Grocery Outlet of Oregon City for helping wheel an entire shopping cart full of cereal out of the store on brew day.
