SweetWater Brewing Company, Almond Milk Stout
Sidle up to the perfect pint pub for an innovative new deliciously smooth, dark and indulgent classic-style milk stout, but
with a tasty dairy-free almond milk twist. All of the flavor and mouthfeel of a bold tasting stout, yet lighter-better-faster, with
a nod to the new non-dairy day dawning. Super stouty and nicely balanced, this cow-less coup is an authentic tasting milk
stout featuring flavors of roasted coffee, milk and dark chocolates. Almond flavor with some roasted malt smoooooths it all
out for a whole new off the mainstream brew.
SweetWater’s roots began back in Boulder, Colorado in the early 90′s while Freddy Bensch and Kevin McNerney were
roommates at the University of Colorado, Boulder. During their time out west, they realized they had more of a hankering for
beer than books. Their first step into the profession was washing kegs on the loading docks of a local brewery for free beer.
Not a bad job when you’re in college! With all this free beer, their grades went up, their cars got fixed, friends were plentiful
and the sun shined a little brighter. Once they were finished with school, it was time to either find a real job, or get serious in
the brewing business. Easy choice, right? Freddy and Kevin headed off to the American Brewers Guild in California aka
Brewing School to sharpen up their knowledge of “Fermentation Science”! After that they were off and running brewing beer
for other breweries around the west coast, learning their craft while keeping the dream of their own place alive.
