The Bruery 8 Maids-A-Milking is the eighth verse of the brewery’s “Twelve Beers of Christmas” series.
The 2015 verse is 8 Maids-a Milking, and if you haven’t guessed the style yet, it’s a milk stout. An 11.5% alcohol by volume milk stout to be exactly. Meant to be drank now, or cellared until the series completes in 2019.
8 Maids-A-Milking is suitable for aging up to four years (soon after the release of “Twelve Drummers Drumming”) when cellared properly.
The Bruery 8 Maids-A-Milking is available in 750 milliliter bottles. Released in mid-October in the tap room, and headed to distribution towards the end of the month.
