Frankfort, MI – ­Stormcloud Brewing Company is pleased to announce the release of their newest collaborative beer, Legally Wed & Off To Bed. A Belgian IPA infused with hibiscus, Legally Wed & Off To Bed was brewed this spring by Stormcloud in collaboration with Fermenta, a Michigan-­based collective of women brewers.

A non-­traditional marriage of hops and hibiscus, the Belgian­-style India Pale Ale was brewed with Cascade, Mosaic and Michigan-grown Crystal hops. Stormcloud Beer Education

Coordinator Charla Kramer says, “The Michigan hops lend a firm but clean backbone to this ale while the tropical notes of Mosaic hops court the hibiscus flower. She might be a Pink Lady, but the hibiscus is no fragile violet. Her tart sassiness is the perfect match for this beer’s light hop bitterness.”

Crisp, light, and refreshing, Legally Wed & Off To Bed is a summer­-ready IPA. “We had a lot of fun brewing this beer,” says Stormcloud Head Brewer and Co-­Owner Brian Confer. “The

Fermenta brewers came from across the state and contributed their efforts throughout the brewing process. And it’s a great beer. We already have it on tap here at Stormcloud and it’s getting very positive reviews.”

Legally Wed & Off to Bed is now available on tap in Stormcloud’s pub in downtown Frankfort. The IPA will also be showcased with other Fermenta-­brewed beers at this year’s Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti, happening July 22-­23.
