Omar de Frias, owner of Fratello Cigars, has announced a new product for the company – Fratello Beer. This comes about as a partnership between Fratello and Adroit Theory Brewery in Purcerville, VA to create this new product in three styles.
This is a project that has been in the works for quite some time. Following the success of our smaller projects Terminal Descent back in 2019 and the Fratello Hazy IPA in 2020 we knew this was going to be an ongoing initiative for us. We set out to make a craft beer to pair with our cigars. This resulted in controlling the hops, bitterness and sour taste of our beers that tend to offset a great pairing.

The three new lines of beer are Classico IPA, Oro Mexican Lager, and Imperiale Hazy IPA.
Classico IPA, is a golden American IPA where the bitterness is balanced and imparts an alluring blend of resin and citrus flavors. Presentation is 16 Oz. Cans 4-Packs/24-case) ABV:6.1%
Oro Mexican Lager, Clean and refreshingly crisp lager. Made with flaked maize for maximum smoothness and no bitterness. Presentation is 16 Oz. Cans 4-Packs/24-case) ABV:4.5%
Imperiale Hazy IPA, This fresh take on a New England style IPA uses lactose to produce a creamy malt body with minimal bitterness and tropical sweetness. Presentation is 16 Oz. Cans 4-Packs/24-case) ABV:8.1%
We are proud to partner with Omar and the Fratello Team in this new project. Their team and ours created a great synergy where we challenged each other’s palates in creating three beautiful styles of beer.
