Beer Facts

Milk stout is not made with actual milk - instead, it contains lactose. This sugar is unaffected by beer yeast, so it is not broken down during the fermentation process. This leaves the stout with the sweet, creamy quality that it is known for.

My Milk Stout Haiku was inspired by a fantastic brew that Chris and I sampled over the weekend. It's made by the Left Hand Brewing Company, and I highly suggest you check it out, if you have the opportunity.
