Whoa, whoa. In case you have never had Jordan Rainhard’s award-winning Sweetback’s Milk Stout – it is now available at the Rainhard Brewery at 100 Symes Rd. in the Stockyards – the real news here is that it is going to be available year-round. Thank you, based Jordan, for your awesome beer and what I’m sure is difficult brew-schedule-movement that allows us to get tucked into stouts right as we round the corner into fall! Full press release below, folks.
TORONTO, ON: This Thursday, September 1st marks the return of Sweetback’s Milk Stout to the Rainhard Brewing taproom and bottle shop and to good beer bars in Toronto and throughout Ontario. It’s the first release of this beer since winning the Gold Medal in the Stout category at the 2016 Ontario Brewing Awards.
Milk Stout is a traditional beer style unique in its use of lactose, an unfermentable sugar, to add sweetness. Also known as Sweet Stout, it’s the alternative to the Dry or Irish stout. Our take on the style is creamy and easy-drinking, with notes of cocoa and cold-brewed coffee, and sits at 5.25% and 25 IBU.
With this release, Sweetback’s will be part of Rainhard Brewing year-round lineup, along with Armed ‘N Citra Pale Ale, Unfiltered Pilsner, and Kapow! IPA.
