MBW collaborates with Coin Toss Brewing
Upon meeting over five years ago, MBW’s Michael Kora and Coin Toss Brewing’s Tim Hohl realized they not only shared a love for beer, but both were born and raised in Michigan. Michael had long wanted to brew with Michigan-based food ingredients, so the idea to add Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes (from Battle Creek, MI) to the mash was born. Added simply as an adjunct to boost alcohol and some flavor, Michael and Tim brewed the first “Catch A Tiger” collaboration IPA in August of 2016.
The recipe has been refined over the years, but at the heart of this beer is a solid Pilsner malt backbone, 30 pounds of frosted flakes cereal and a piney/tropical/dank hop combo of Chinook, Simcoe and Idaho 7 hops. The finish is dry and appropriately bitter for a west coast IPA. 7.4% ABV
