Ninjas… Juggalos… Homies… Errbody… I’m very pleased to announce that Faygo Beer is something that has actually been created and you may get the chance to try for yourself! Seven different beers have been brewed by seven different breweries with seven different Faygo flavors that will be debuting at the Michigan Brewers Guild Fall Beer Festival. That event will be going down on the weekend of October 26-27 at the Eastern Market in Detroit, MI. Check out more info on the event including ticket links at MIBeer.com by CLICKING HERE.

Now on to the beer.

If you’re lucky enough to hit up the event, you’ll get the chance to try any of these seven different beers including:

  • A Redpop kettle sour by Traffic Jam and Snug
  • Scotch Cherry Whoop Whoop (inspired by Rock n Rye) by Founders Detroit
  • A Moon Mist IPA by Eastern Market Brewing Co.
  • Cotton Candy Berliner weisse by Brew Detroit
  • 60/40 Radler by Detroit Beer Co
  • A Double Dirty Blonde with Faygo Orange and coriander by Atwater
  • Better Made Grape FayGose (which uses Detroit-based potato chips in the beer) by Batch Brewing Co.

If you’re going to be in or around the Detroit area on October 26-27th and you’re a Juggalo and you also like beer I recommend checking this out ninja!

Uproxx.com has posted an article about the beer and even include Juggalos in the title and writing. You can check out that full article by CLICKING HERE or you can check that out below.

Juggalos, Rejoice! Seven Faygo Beers Are Here For Your Consumption

It is a well-established fact that fans of Insane Clown Posse, a.k.a.Juggalos, have a deep and abiding love of Faygo, the Detroit-based beverage company that makes over 50 different flavors of soda. And, in fact, though Faygo has long been a Michigan staple, it’s thanks to our ICP-loving friends that most Americans even know what Faygo is.

Now, Juggalo and non-Juggalo fans of the soda company have a new reason to celebrate: according toFood & Wine, the Detroit Beer Experiment will debutseven beers made from seven Faygo flavorsat the Michigan Brewers Guild Fall Beer Festival this autumn.

According to theDetroit Free Press, here’s what you canexpect from the seven breweriesparticipating in the venture:

Traffic Jam and Snug is making a Redpop kettle sour. Founders Detroit is making Scotch Cherry Whoop Whoop, inspired by Rock n Rye — a rye scotch ale with dark cherry and vanilla. Eastern Market Brewing Co. is making a Moon Mist IPA. Brew Detroit is making Cotton Candy Berliner weisse. Detroit Beer Co. has created a 60/40 Radler. Atwater is brewing a Double Dirty Blonde with Faygo Orange and coriander. And Batch Brewing Co. seems to be going the extra Detroit mile with its Better Made Grape FayGose, using the Detroit-based potato chips in the beer as well.

Stephen Roginson, one of the brewers involved in the experiment, said in a statement, “Getting together with our brewing community to brainstorm, bend elbows, and do something outside of the norm? What a fun industry to be a part of.”

We agree that it’s pretty cool to try to figure out how to synthesize Redpop and the Warhead quality of a kettle sour. It’ll be interesting to see if this whole experiment works. Guess you and all your Juggalo friends will just have to go to the brewfest the weekend of Oct. 26-27 to find out.WHOOOOOOP! FAM-IL-EEEEEEE.

The Detroit Free Press has also posted an article about the beer which doesn’t mention Juggalos at all, but Faygo is Detroit based. But y’all know that. You can check that article out by CLICKING HERE, or check that out below.

7 Detroit breweries creating Faygo beer flavors for Fall Beer Festival

If you have ever had to choose between Faygo’s Redpop and beer … now you won’t have to pick one over the other.

Detroit’s Beer Experiment, a collaboration between seven local breweries, all will incorporate signature Faygo flavors into each one of their beers for the Michigan Brewers Guild Fall Beer Festival in Eastern Market this year.

The Fall Beer Festival takes place on Oct. 26-27.

“Getting together with our brewing community to brainstorm, bend elbows, and do something outside of the norm? What a fun industry to be a part of,” said Stephen Roginson, co-founder of Batch Brewing Co. in Corktown, in a statement.

In 2016, the beer experiment took on food-inspired beers, featuring a pilsner made with ginger, lemon peel, yuzu and whiskey-barrel-aged fish sauce.

This year, the collective experiment will pay homage to the pop that defined Detroit.

Whether or not these classic, syrupy Faygo flavors will shine through in these brews depends on your taste buds.

Each brew will debut at its respective brewery starting Oct. 19.

    I hope they do a limited time production after the festival to let more juggalos get a little taste of them beers. Any Detroit homies going to this willing to come back and give us a flavor synopsis?
