Maple Barrel-Aged Frangelic Mountain Brown will exclusively be available

in both the Detroit and Grand Rapids taproom beginning January 27

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., December 16, 2021  Founders Brewing Co. has announced that Maple Barrel-Aged Frangelic Mountain Brown will be the sixteenth release in the taproom Mothership Series and the first release of 2021. The beer that pushed the coffee beer envelope returns with a twist. The sweet and nutty coffee notes of Frangelic Mountain Brown soar after they’re introduced to bourbon barrels that previously housed maple syrup – adding complexity to an already sophisticated brown ale.

“Brown ales aren’t usually considered a “flashy” beer style, but this one certainly has some flair,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “In fact, it’s pretty jam-packed with amazing flavors like hazelnut, coffee, maple, oak and bourbon; all perfectly balanced into a solid brown ale base.”

Maple Barrel-Aged Frangelic Mountain Brown will be available in 6-packs of 12oz bottles and on draft beginning January 27, 2021 exclusively in both the Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. It will have a price of $20/6-pack.

The Mothership Series are ultra-limited, brew team favorite beers only found in bottles at Founders’ taproom locations. Whether it’s an old standby the brewery brought out of retirement or an experimental new style, it’s sure to go quickly. Previous Mothership Series beers have included: Frootwood, Passion Fruit Gose, Blushing Padre, Detroit Double IPA, Devil Dancer, French Toast Bastard, Oktoberfest, Pale Joe and Mucho Lupu.
