Founders Introduces Frootwood Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cherry Ale (Coming Jan 2017)

imageFrom Founders:

Over the last few months, we’ve been hinting that 2017 is going to be a year full of incredible beers – and we’re ready to share the first of those with you. While you’ll have to wait until the new year (January, to be precise) to get your hands on this one, here’s a glimpse at the latest addition to our lineup of barrel-aged beers.

Introducing Frootwood: 

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 will be available in some states as early as January, with remaining states seeing it by February. We plan to release it in our taproom on January 25, 2017 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. You asked, we listened!

UPDATE:  Here are the actual full labels (12oz & 750ml):
