Schlafly Beer Releases New Frugi-Four Sampler Pack
(ST. LOUIS; April 17, 2018)—Schlafly Beer announces the release of the Frugi-Four Pack, a 12-pack sampler showcasing four distinct beer styles that highlight four different fruits. Three bottles of each of the beers will be included: Pineapple IPA, Passionfruit Saison, Coconut Crème Ale and Tangerine Lager. The fruit-forward pack showcases the Schlafly brewing team’s commitment to brewing beer with real fruit. The largest, locally owned brewery prides itself on extracting the most flavor from the true fruit without artificial flavors and coloring.
Founding Brewer Stephan Hale says, “From our seasonal Raspberry Hefeweizen to our fall seasonal Pumpkin Ale, we’re proud of our expertise in brewing with real ingredients. This pack captures the spirit of a frugivore, a fruit-eating mammal that depends on the nutritional value of fruit. These fun, bright flavors for summer showcase how fruit beer can fit any style from Saisons to IPAs.”
For example, Schlafly brings the tropics to Belgium with the Passionfruit Saison (6.0%), a cloudy wheat beer with sweetness and spice with depth and subtlety. After a successful tasting at Schlafly’s Hop in the City and Cabin Fever festivals, Tangerine Lager (5.5%) makes it to packaging as a traditional lager with a touch of sweetness. Tropical-inspired styles are perfect for summertime, including the Pineapple IPA (6.0%), the perfect mix of hoppy, fruity beer and juicy pineapple, and Coconut Crème Ale (5.5%), the American-style wheat ale created by fermenting coconuts and pineapples and then aging the beer on toasted coconut flakes.
From the winter-season’s Stout Bouts to the summer Hop Trial pack, samplers showcase Schlafly’s commitment to encourage Schlafly consumers to try different styles and unexpected flavors throughout the year. Schlafly Beer’s Frugi-Four Sampler Pack will be available for purchase in St. Louis and across Schlafly’s distribution on April 23, 2018.
