Jeff Coon, Frankenmuth Brewery’s brewmaster, is continually creating the fine beer that is available for consumption in both the brewhouse/restaurant and in your own home. For those indoctrinated in his brewing magic, it’s obvious the man is capable of creating an amazing beer. In celebration of 2012, Coon has created a dark stout that will be available in limited quantity for the first few weeks of the New Year.
Dubbed the New Years Stout, Coon has spent the waning days of December not only developing and brewing the beer, but also creating all new labels for the limited edition one liter bottles. The brewmaster is happy to report that the beer is done “getting happy in the kegs” and the bottling process had began as of Monday, December 26. With a release date of January 3 set in his sights, Frankenmuth’s brewmaster is extremely excited about his new low-run craft beer.
Just how limited is this special batch of New Years Stout? Only 801 bottles will be released to the Metro-Detroit area with a few being reserved for distributors. Don’t question Coon though about how he came up with the magic bottle count. Why such an odd number? “Because I can,” says the self proclaimed Brew Pastor. Adding to the level of rareness, Coon will be hand-signing each bottle. Visit the Frankenmuth Brewery to pick up your special bottle of New Years Stout or contact your local beer shoppe about its availability before they are all snapped up. Have a safe and Happy New Beers … er, Years.
