ABV 5.8% IBU 33: A testament to the art of brewing, with so many micro breweries opened in the last few years and putting their beer in bottles, the craft beer market is growing massively and brewers are becoming more and more creative and pushing themselves to compete with the growing market. Tailgate Peanut Butter Milk Stout is one of those beers that have excelled, building a recipe for a beer that has all the characteristics of peanut butter, but all the flavour is created by a clever use of Malt, Hops and Yeast. Deep dark and decadent beer with aromas of chocolate ganache, coffee and lashings of peanut butter, rich and tasty malts bring a touch of sweetness and soft creamy finish. A Nashville staple and one of the music cities most awarded beers definitely one I want to taste in the brewery tap room where I can take in the whole brewing experience.
Dark beers have equally grown in popularity and every week I find another that just has to be added to the range. Check out the Fordham Oak Barrel Stout, it is definitely my favourite beer at the moment and one I would insist everyone try it is incredible.
Who would have thought when beer was first brewed in the Middle East some 7,000 years ago that brewing would become the art it is today, beer was probably first made to save the properties of the grain that it was being made with and also would have soon been found to be safer than water as the brewing process kills off many of the microbes and poisons that live in stagnant water. You know I think it’s time I write that history of beer to add to this site and we all enjoy our beer more with a little education.
