More milkshake in 2019. Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA hits shelves

Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA

If you expected styles like the “milkshake IPA” to die off in 2019, you might think again. Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA is hitting the market.

The India pale ale went from clear to hazy (New England Style IPA). Then from hazy to lactose and fruit heavy (milkshake IPA). Oregon’s Full Sail has been experimenting with milkshake style and has settled on a recipe to ship nationally. The brewery has dubbed it the Malted Milkshake Style IPA, brewed with oats, wheat and lactose milk sugar.

“With Malted Milkshake, we really nailed it. It’s unfiltered, not bitter, and there’s tons of aroma packed into a full-bodied, creamy IPA.” – Full Sail Brewmaster Greg Doss

Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA is now available in 12-ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.

Style: IPA (Milkshake IPA) w/ Lactose
Hops: Ekuanot, Denali, Comet, Citra, Cascade
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: January 2019

6.8% ABV, 40 IBUs

One of the best donut inspired beers, Burial Skillet Donut Stout returns

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans return as 2018 comes to a close. 

Burial Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee. This fan favorite is big on coffee with just a tiny hint of milk chocolate, finishing silky smooth. Breakfast beer? Dessert beer? That’s up to you. We’ve turned it into a pool beer when it comes back in the summer time.

Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier for this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.

Burial Skillet Donut Stout 16-ounce cans and draft will return to the taproom and distribution the last week of 2018.

Style: Imperial Stout/Oatmeal Stout (w/ CoffeeLactoseMolasses Sugar)
Malt: 6-Row

Creature Comforts Koko Buni is coffee, meets chocolate (in December)

Creature Comforts Koko Buni can

Creature Comforts Koko Buni, the brewery’s coveted milk porter, returns to cans again in mid-December. 

One of the first seasonals by the Athens, Georgia based brewery, Creature Comforts Koko Buni is a milk porter, aged on toasted coconut and cocoa nibs  Condor Chocolates and coffee from nearby 1000 Faces. This late fall season has been overwhelmingly popular since its debut a few years ago. We’ve seen fistfights over Koko cans at retailers.

2018 is the first production run after the brewery brought their new production facility online, so fans should expect a little more “Buni” to go around this year. 

“We decided not to be traditional with the beer and add some ingredients that play well with the already roasty and chocolatey flavors of darker beers.” -Co-Founder and Head Brewer David Stein.

Coffee lovers will find a home here. Koko Buni starts heavy on the 1000 Faces coffee, and turns chocolatey mid-sip, finishing with a wisp of coconut.

Creature Comforts Koko Buni will be a seasonal draft and 12-ounce can offering, available at the brewery and Georgia retailers again in mid-December, 2018.

Style: Milk Porter (w/ Cocoa Nibs, Coffee, Toasted Coconut, Lactose.)
Availability: Draft, 12oz Cans
Distribution: Athens & Atlanta, Georgia (Very Limited)
Latest Return: November 2018

6.8% ABV

Koko means coconut in Papiamento, a common language in parts of the Carribean, while Buni means coffee in Swahili, a common language in southeastern Africa.
