With this series, we plan to combine our creativity
and expertise to produce a unique experience for
any lover of beer.
Our brewmaster, Chris Young,
is paired with one of our staff members
to concoct a one-of-a-kind test batch of beer.
Every Sunday, beginning in January, we will be releasing
our hand-crafted test batch beers from the Taproom.
Try a beer, collect a stamp for your passport (available at the Taproom).
Earn enough stamps and be eligible to win a plethora of prizes,
including a chance to brew your very own beer at Half Pints!
April 8th: Blonde Stout
Brewers: Chris & Dave
Blonde on Blonde [Stout]
Dave is a man of many talents, brewing being an important one. As someone who is as comfortable in the kitchen as he is at the brew kettle, Dave has concocted a hybrid style of stout. The aim of getting a roasty flavor without the dark body (which means not using roasted malts) was a tricky task.
Using a blend of cold brewed coffee and horchata, as well as almond milk and lactose, (three milks, get it?) this beer has a smooth foundation to begin. Adding vanilla for an accent of flavour and a few hops for bittering, this stout will be the lightest you’ve ever seen.
