Frosted Flakes Beer Is Real And It’s Here For You To Drink
By Cooking Panda
That’s right. Your favorite breakfast cereal has taken its final form, and it is way better suited to your adult sensibilities.
Might we even say that it’s GRRREEEEAT!
Oregon beer masters Montavilla Brew Works of Portland and Coin Toss Brewing of Oregon City teamed up to pay homage to Michigan cereal masters, Kellogg’s, and used around 25 pounds of the sugary cereal to brew the new Catch a Tiger Double IPA, according to the Oregon Craft Beer press release.
Montavilla owner Michael Kora and Coin Toss owner Tim Hohl both come from Detroit, so it seemed natural for them to collaborate on a tribute to their hometown.
“It’s my goal to eventually work with all the great brewers in Portland who have relocated from Michigan,” Kora said in a joint press release. “Since Battle Creek, Mich. is home to Kellogg’s, Frosted Flakes seemed like a fun opportunity to celebrate our shared Michigan roots.”
The millennial-friendly IPA debuted at Montavilla Brew Works on Sept. 16 and at Coin Toss Brewing on Sept. 18 and features pilsner malt, Cascade, Horizon, Idaho 7, Chinook and Simcoe hops mixed in with the Frosted Flakes.
But how does it taste? Is it better than Ballast Point’s Victory at Cereal?
The press release says that the finished result is a “big beer” that has “a bitter bite with aromas of citrus, pine and orange marmalade” and is — wait for it — “GRRRRRRRRREAT!”
We haven’t gotten the opportunity to try it for ourselves, but if you get a chance, let us know what you think!
It comes in at 7.2 percent ABV and 69 IBU, pretty standard for a double IPA.
“Michigan has a pretty amazing craft beer scene of its own,” said Hohl. “As a couple of guys from Detroit, we wanted to give a fun nod to our home state while making a Northwest style IPA our customers would appreciate.”
The brewers also wanted to give a shout out to Dan Mills at Grocery Outlet of Oregon for helping them haul a shopping cart full of Frosted Flakes out of the store.Catch A Tiger IPA, cereal beer, Detroit beer, Frosted Flakes beer, weird beer
