Rochester Mills Cancels Plans to Ship Beer to Germany

(Auburn Hills, MI) After learning that the German government probably won’t recognize it’s flagship brew, Milkshake Stout, as a beer that falls within a legitimate style (see related story) Rochester Mills Beer Co. and Production Brewery say they have no plans to export any of their beers in 16 oz. Cans or draft kegs to the European country known for its strict Reinheitsgrebot or Bavarian Beer Purity Law. At least not for the immediate future. Leaving more for patrons in Michigan, Ohio & Florida.

“It’s surprising that in this day and age people still feel the need to slap labels on everything. Beer should be fun and not taken so seriously” said a spokesperson for the Brewery who wishes to remain anonymous. “We just want to brew the best beers we can for everyone to enjoy. Those beers just happen to be more or less true to style, just with our own twist on the style and if those beers turn out fantastical, so be it. ”

This also halts any plans to send beer to the International Space Station.

Rochester Mills just completed it’s annual 12 Days of Milkshake Stout over the holidays, which was met with rave reviews: “Blueberry Pancake may be the best beer I’ve ever tasted” raved a fan on the internets. The beers of the 12 Days of Milkshake Stout were so sought after fans have been bombarding the brewery with requests for larger batches to be brewed as soon as possible. Well, they are listening over at the Production Brewery and are planning to do just that… Stay tuned.
