“High in Decadence” Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout ships

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout, the brewery’s sixth new release in Summer 2019, debuts.

In keeping with the brewery’s line of ice cream themed beers (you shouldn’t have missed Bomb Pop Double IPA), LaGrange, Georgia based Wild Leap Brewing has released a new imperial milk stout, inspired by a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. According to the brewery, it’s the heaviest bodied beer Wild Leap has created to date.

The base is a boozy milk stout (brewed with lactose), and a heavy dose of vanilla. So much so, that the brewery’s CEO calls this release “high in decadence.” Wild Leap’s head brewer Chris Elliott used to work for Blue Bell Ice Cream, so the fusion of past and present jobs is sure to continue in future beers.

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

Style: Imperial Milk Stout (w/ Vanilla Beans. Lactose.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Late August 2019

Mother Earth debuts vanilla ice cream inspired cream ale

Mother Earth Cali Creamin' Can

A successful year-round cream ale now inspired by a frosty popsicle. Mother Earth Creamin’ Creamsicle debuts year-round. 

Mother Earth Brew Co. has a wildly successful cream ale – Cali Creamin’. It’s not often you find a brewery with a cream ale as their top seller. Building on that success, the brewery has launched a dessert-themed counterpart, Creamin’ Creamsicle.

The base is the familiar cream ale, with a dose of vanilla beans, and creamier thanks to lactose milk sugar.

Cali Creamsicle features hints of vanilla and a distinct citrus cream flavor that finishes slightly sweeter than it’s Cream Ale counterpart. Just as refreshing, just as iconic.

Mother Earth Creamin’ Creamsicle will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft year-round in late August 2019.

Style: Cream Ale (w/ Vanilla Beans. Lactose.)
Hops: Warrior
Malts: Pale 2-Row, Light Crystal, Flaked Corn, Dextrin, Honey Malt, Flaked Oats, Acidulated

Debut: Late August 2019

Posted in Seasonal Return, Southern Tier Brewing

Southern Tier Pumking has been back on shelves since mid-July

Southern Tier Pumking has already hit shelves again in 2019. In reality, it started hitting shelves in mid-July, alongside the brewery’s pumpkin stout, Warlock. Pumking is easily one of the most unique (and highly debated) pumpkin beer across craft beer since debuting in 2007.

The 9% strong ale is brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, clove, and allspice. Each sip is an over-the-top fall beer that tastes like biting into pumpkin pie (crust included). Much to the chagrin of beer drinkers and their social media hatred of beer seasonal creep, Pumking really is the king one thing – it’s always the first pumpkin beer on shelves every season for the past few years. The brewery has not said if that helps beer sales or not.

In 2015, Pumking also shipped 12-ounce bottles, making the imperial pumpkin ale a little more manageable if you are flying solo.

In 2014, the brewery added Southern Tier Rum Aged Pumking,

Southern Tier Pumking is available in 12-ounce bottles, 22-ounce bottles, and draft through the fall.

Style: Pumpkin Beer (Allspice. Cinnamon. Clove. Nutmeg. Vanilla.)
Hops:
 Sterling, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row Pale, Caramel

Availability: 22oz Bombers.  Draft. 12oz Bottles
Latest Return: Late July 2019
