12 Days of Milkshake Stout – More Details Released

PrintIt’s almost time for Michigan craft beer lovers (and a few in Ohio & Florida) to celebrate the holidays with another 12 days of Milkshake Stout featuring beers from Rochester Mills Beer Co. Last year’s event took place at 12 premium craft beer bars and restaurants simultaneously across the State and proved so popular that 42 locations will be pouring varieties of Michigan’s favorite Stout from the 9th to the 20th of December.

The Original Milkshake Stout is one of our best selling beers. The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture. The base stout serves as a foundation and blends nicely with a number of tempting flavor combinations.

The 12 Days of Milkshake Stout is a progressive tap takeover featuring 12 specialty and limited edition varieties of Milkshake Stout.  Each night a new variety gets tapped and keeps pouring until the keg runs dry. We’ve brought back some fan favorites like Blueberry Pancake, Chocolate Cheesecake, Creme de Menthe and Christmas Toffee while adding some new or revised varieties like Cinnamon Roll, German Chocolate Cake, Peach Cobbler, Chunky Monkey, Toasted Marshmallow and Vanilla Mocha. And of course we’ve included Imperial (guess which day that is released?) and Bourbon Barrel Aged Milkshake Stout.

A Rochester Mills representative will be onsite on select nights handing out brewery swag. Guests have the opportunity to receive a Golden Ticket invitation to a future beer release party at the Rochester Mills Production Brewery in Auburn Hills, Michigan. These beers won’t last long so plan accordingly.
