Founders Brewing Company is rereleasing its barrel-aged cherry ale Frootwood in January.
Last released as part of the Grand Rapids brewery’s Mothership series in 2020, Frootwood is a light-bodied cherry ale aged in barrels that previously held bourbon and maple syrup.
“The barrel-aged beer developed an impassioned following after its initial release in 2017,” Founders said.
Frootwood, with an ABV of 8%, will be available in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles and on draft in Founders’ Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms on Nov. 26 and nationwide starting in January.
Frootwood will have a retail price of $15 per four-pack; prices will vary by market.
“Crafting legendary barrel-aged beers is an exercise in patience,” Founders said. “We start by brewing complex, world-class beer worthy of time in a barrel. Then, our experience and years spent mastering our craft means we know exactly when it’s been aged to perfection. After one sip, you’ll know it was worth the wait.”
