The new Blueberry Berliner Weisse, called Frenchy’s Blues, debuted last Tuesday at SunTrust Park for the Braves’ home game against the Washington Nationals. It’s also available on draft at the Athens brewery.

Francoeur, a Gwinnett native and resident, shared the news on Twitter last week.

The former ball player was part of a group of rookie players known as the “Baby Braves” back in 2005. Francoeur played for the Atlanta team from 2005-2009 and again in 2016. He retired in 2017 after playing 1,481 games and joined Fox Sports Southeast as an analyst that same year.
