A Beer for the River: Friends of the Fox Scottish Ale
Posted by helen on October 22nd, 2011
Friends of the Fox (FOF), our sister organization, has partnered with the Fox River Brewing Company to bring you a beer for the River! Friends of the Fox Scottish Ale has been created especially for FOF by the Fox River Brewing Company at the Supple Group restaurants and the Melting Pot.
Fox River Brewing Company is bottling a 22 ounce Scottish Ale under the name of Friends of the Fox with a portion of the proceeds going to FOF. The brew is a deep amber Scotch style ale. Malt flavors are big toffee and caramel, a touch of chocolate, and a kiss of smoke from peat malt. Hop levels are low, with a faint bitterness and mild hop aroma. Medium to full bodied.
The FOF brew is currently available by the bottle at the Oshkosh and Fox River Mall Fratello’s locations and will soon be sold at the Appleton Fratello’s Riverfront and Appleton’s Melting Pot. The cost is $2.99 per 22 oz. bottle or $10.90/4 pack with $.50 of the proceeds going to the FOF. This is an opportunity to support FOF while having dinner out or taking a 4 pack home to enjoy…..stock up today!
FOF truly appreciates the partnership they’ve developed with the Supple Group and the creative way they have found to help fund the important work they are doing to improve the environmental and recreational resources of the Fox River.
The Oshkosh and Appleton Fratello’s restaurants have superb locations on the River and attract many individuals that enjoy the water side setting. The Oshkosh location has slip and bulkhead docking available while the Appleton Fratello’s is located in the most unique location on the Lower Fox River. Make it a point to stop in for lunch or dinner at one of these fine establishments and don’t go home without a couple of 4 packs of FOF brew to enjoy!
Please ask your local restaurants, taverns and markets to add Friends of the Fox Scottish Ale to their stock so we can enjoy a hearty ale throughout the valley.
