Bar manager Alex Lamb describes Frost Warning as “fruity and bright with a bitter finish," which fits with the beer’s hazy IPA origins. It was brewed as a half-batch (500 gallons), and has been selling well since it was put on tap April 20, the day before Nebraska's Red-White Spring Game. Brewmaster Trevor Schaben the brewery might need to make more if sales remain swift.

Schaben thought of naming the beer Fog Warning, since it’s a bit cloudy. But many other breweries had already used the name, so Thunderhead opted for Frost Warning, paying tribute to Scott Frost’s arrival as Nebraska’s head football coach. “It was kind of a coincidence that the beer was put on tap the day before the Spring Game,” Schaben said. “I realized it three days before it happened, just a happy coincidence.”
