WHITEHORSE, YK – Yukon Brewing, has announced the return of a popular winter seasonal and the launch of a new limited edition beer, with both of them available just in time to stock up for Christmas.
Back for its second annual release is Over The Moon Milk Stout, which is made – like most modern milk stouts – with lactose sugar, and is described as follows:
Our Over The Moon milk stout uses a combination of black malt, chocolate malt, and roasted barley for that distinctive stout flavour, plus oats for body. However, the addition of lactose sugar sweetens it up and rounds it off, resulting in a rich and creamy treat.
Brand new from the brewery is Out of the Ordinary, a 3.7% abv UK-style ordinary bitter that has the following brewing notes:
This beer is made with 5 malts, including some black malt, some malted wheat, and some unusual carafoam malt. This malt is designed to add dextrin, which is an unfermentable sugar used as a body builder. Carafoam is also designed for head retention. The hop bill is pretty darn simple. East Kent Golding at the first hop, East Kent Golding at the second hop and (surprise) East Kent Golding at the final hop.
Both beers are currently pouring on the growler filling system at the Yukon retail store, with Over The Moon also available in 650 ml bottles.
