Pilot Batch – Milkshake Stout


Milkshake Stout

Hazy Milk Stout – Lots of Lactose

Batch 5906


    This beer comes from our Head Brewer, Tyson, who has a love-hate relationship with, well many things, but in this case beer trends. Trend in question: Hazy Beer. Unwilling to just plug-and-play in the IPA Haze Craze Tyson decided to apply his aptitude to an Iron Horse specialty, dark beer. He was inspired by some of the dark and crystal roasted wheat malts that have been showing up from maltsters but when it came time to get the job done, he went with Lactose, and lots of it. In fact, it has 3 times the amount as Cozy Sweater. You can find this beer on tap at [ the pub ].
