Dessert beer fan? Don’t miss Garage Brewing Marshmallow Milk Stout.
Beer Street Journal is a sucker for dessert beers. It started years ago with an addiction to Left Hand Milk Stout (aka adult chocolate milk). Since then, milk stouts, chocolate beers, vanilla beers – always on our radar. Thanks to the team at Temecula, California’s Garage Brewing Co., we have a new love –Marshmallow Milk Stout.
The base beer is a creamy, chocolatey milk stout that leans heavy on vanilla. The first whiff of this beer is like opening a bag of marshmallows. The vanilla aroma remains strong on vanilla as it mixes with light hints of chocolate. The full beer experience is a complex beer that doesn’t lean on some artifical vanilla flavor and a name to capture your attention. This dessert beer is the real deal and worth the cash if you find it.
Garage Brewing Marshmallow Milk Stout is available year-round in 12 and 22-ounce bottles, and draft.
7.1% ABV, 9 IBUS

Yet another beer in the brewery’s arsenal brewed with marshmallows. The strong ale is brewed the gooey stuff, plus sweet potatoes and a bevy of fall spices.
Funky Buddha Sweet Potato Casserole Strong Ale will be available in 12-ounce bottles and draft at the brewery starting August 13th, and throughout Florida shortly after.

Funky Buddha Sticky Treats returns to the brewery’s lineup again on July 16th. Let the dessert drinking begin.
As a kid you craved Rice Krispie treats. As an adult, eating them doesn’t bode well for your waistline. Funky Buddha has the perfect solution for you – Sticky Treats.
As the name suggests, this beer is all about the sticky dessert bar. Funky Buddha Sticky Treats is a blonde ale, brewed with marshmallow and touch of rice for authenticity. This beer is light and smooth, and quite vanilla forward. Our unofficial estimates say that this beer has less sugar than the dessert. But WAY more alcohol. That’s winning as far was we are concerned.
Sticky Treats will be available at the brewery in Oakland Park, Florida on Sunday, July 16th. 22-ounce bottles are $7 dollars, with no sales limit.

New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve S’mores is coming to the coveted “Reserve” series in the near future.
By now, the Holland, Michigan based brewery’s Dragon’s Milk, an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels, is pretty iconic. For years, New Holland has been releasing a year-round imperial stout, which has garnered a bit of a cult following. For many, a barrel-aged imperial stout knows no season.
Rewarding that love of big stouts, the brewery created the Dragon’s Milk Reserve Series, a special series that takes Dragon’s Milk to new heights. Entries into the series include the ridiculously tasty Coconut Rum, Vanilla Chai, and hitting shelves now – Mexican Spice Cake. Soon, your campfires can be enhanced by S’mores Dragon’s Milk Reserve.
This future 11% alcohol by volume imperial stout boasts hints of toasted marshmallow and graham cracker (plus, it’s aged in bourbon).
Hints of toasted marshmallow and graham cracker compliment the chocolate character of Dragon’s Milk, giving this Reserve a flavor reminiscent of campfires and summer nights.
New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve S’mores will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft. The brewery has not yet announced this release.
Terrapin Chubby Bunny is the both the 4th release in the brewery’s employee brew-off series, and the 29th Side Project Release.
A few years ago, the Athens, Georgia based brewery decided to put their employees to the [brewing] test. Internally, members of the Terrapin Tribe split up and got fermentationally weird. At the staff end of year party, each team presents their recipe, proposed name (which half the time has to be changed to make the government happy), and a skit relative to the beer. Trust us, it gets pretty hilarious.
This year’s winning recipe is an imperial s’more milk stout, aka Terrapin Chubby Bunny. Inspired by the fireside favorite, Chubby features local Condor Chocolates, graham cracker, and marshmallows.
Chubby Bunny is our 4th installment of our employee home-brew competition. This Imperial milk stout breaks all the rules by combining flavors of graham cracker, toasted marshmallow and dark chocolate. This mouthful of a stout will challenge any beer lover to say “Chubby Bunny”
Terrapin Chubby Bunny will be a 22 ounce bottle release in 2017.
The winning Terrapin employee team: Tim Fennimore, Kim Fraher, Stephan Fraher, Kelly Guglietta, Geoff Hammond, Bear Jordan, and Marth Sproull
