Frankenmuth 150th beer

12-28-2012

Happy 150th Birthday, Frankenmuth Brewery!

 

150 years ago President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, the first ironclad war ship was launched and Frankenmuth Brewery opened its doors for the first time. Throughout the years, the ups and downs (including the brewery being demolished by a tornado), the Frankenmuth tradition of great beer brewing has remained constant.

 

West Side Beer is incredibly proud to work with the second oldest brewery in the nation and we are very excited to celebrate such a milestone with Frankenmuth. One of the best parts of celebrating such a milestone? It is a wonderful reason to brew up something special and tasty to highlight such an accomplishment.

 

The 150th Anniversary Frankenmuth Dark Lager, available in one-liter bottles, brings together the best of both new and old to celebrate such a big birthday. Brewmaster Jeff Coon ensured each bottle received extra special attention for authenticity, including his personal signature and hand labeling and numbering on each of the 1862 bottles released (1862…get it?).

 

But back to what the beer is like. They unlocked and released the original Frankenmuth Dark from the 1940s to be blended with this batch.  That means in each sip of the Anniversary brew is a bit of a 50-year-old cellared beer.


Can you taste the nostalgia? I think so.
