Two Franconia favorites returning to bottles

The recent passage of legislation allowing breweries with a manufacturing license to sell beer to-go has inspired Franconia Brewing Co. of McKinney to re-release two of its popular beers in bottles.

First among them, Franconia Wheat (4.8% ABV) returns to packaged form after being relegated to draft-only status for the past four years. A true German-style hefeweizen, Franconia Wheat is one of the brewery's original beers, and one that will be available in bottles as a brewery exclusive from this point forward.

Initial packages of Franconia Wheat go on sale Sunday, September 1 (a.k.a. Beer-To-Go Day in Texas), during the brewery's Oktoberfest Kick-Off Party. Six-packs of both Franconia Wheat and Franconia Oktoberfest will be offered for just $5.99, a special price valid for one day only.

As for what else is on the horizon, Franconia Ice Bock (17% ABV) is also set to reappear in bottles. This too will be a brewery exclusive, with a limited run of individual 12-ounce bottles expected to be offered for sale in the coming weeks.
