Posted on January 25th, 2018 by TEAM Schostak in Community, Events

TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR) and its 64 Michigan Applebee’s have partnered with the locally-based Old Nation Brewing Co. to host a statewide tap takeover featuring M-43. Old Nation’s M-43 will be available at TSFR’s Michigan Applebee’s starting on Monday, February 5.

We are a family owned and operated company committed to joining forces with fellow locally based businesses to spotlight the high-quality food and beverage options available in our backyard. Old Nation has a reputation for leading the way in the craft beer industry, and we are proud to feature its popular M-43 brew in our Applebee’s restaurants. We believe this is the first of many steps in revitalizing the buy local movement in the year ahead as we continue to partner with business throughout our home state.

The first release in Old Nation’s “New Orthodox” IPA series, M-43 offers aromatic notes of pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Designed to accentuate the deep and complex character from the combination of Calypso, Simcoe, Citra and Amarillo hops, M-43 is widely known as a New England IPA that even non-IPA fans enjoy.

“Since our founding, it has been our wish and our mission to ensure people always drink good beer and eat good food,” said Old Nation Owner Travis Fritts. “By partnering with local companies, such as TSFR, we view this as an opportunity to provide M-43 to an expanded base of consumers that may not have had the chance to try it before. We look forward to continuing these local partnerships and other community-based initiatives as we expand our craft brew production.”

Old Nation’s M-43 will remain on tap at Applebee’s statewide while supplies lasts.
