Franklin County Stout: All you Love about the Panhandle in One Bottle

Posted by Abby Eller | April 09, 2015

Oysters, peppers and lemons- OH MY! All three can be found in our latest seasonal brew, Franklin County Stout. We know brewing with oysters sounds strange, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it! Trust us, you don’t want to miss out on this limited-release stout!

The fresh Florida lemon peel and spice combine with delicate French Strisselspalt hop aroma to produce a velvety sweet stout. Highly accentuated by a roasted malt nose, our Franklin County Stout finishes with subtle notes of chili spice, attributed to the usage of poblano and chipotle peppers.

Franklin County Stout pays homage to the ‘Old Florida’ fishing town of Apalachicola, which is where the oysters used in this brew originated. You know we like to support our fellow local businesses whenever we can!

This new brew is also the third beer in our Artist Series and features label artwork by Justin Lyons, a contemporary artist from Grayton Beach. From the label to the ingredients, this beer is a nod to a few of the many wonderful things found in the Panhandle.

Pair this sweet stout with (surprise!) oysters; raw, grilled or baked. If you want to kick it up a notch, pair with a spicy seafood gumbo to complement the hints of chili spice.

Be on the lookout for this limited-release stout in retailers, bars and restaurants in coming weeks!
