Weyerbacher Brewers Select Sierra Milk Stout

imageWe brought you the news of Sierra back in Aug….so it’s exciting to see this from Weyerbacher:

Sierra (the NATO / phonetic alphabet letter “S”) is the next up in our series of Brewers’ Select beers. Sierra is Weyerbacher’s take on a milk stout.

Starting off with a healthy dose of Maris Otter as a base we integrate some roasted barley, plenty of chocolate and munich malts, a touch of flaked oats and some milk sugar (lactose) to balance out this roasty treat.

The dark chocolate and roastiness stemming from the malts along with the slight residual cream-like sweetness left from the milk sugar make for a complementary flavor that’s sure to please the stout lover and even those not yet familiar with this old English style of ale.

(At this exact moment, Sierra is kegged but not yet bottled… as we are awaiting official signoff on our label approval. Look for this beer mid October. As with all of our Brewers’ Select beers, 12oz bottles are available exclusively at the Weyerbacher Visitors Center and the draft is made available fantastic bars in a limited number of states – Cheers!)
