Burnt City Brewing Introduces Freight Handler Milk Stout
Most of the leaves have vanished, the nights are getting longer, and Jack Frost has been seen wandering around North America. There’s no stopping it – winter’s coming. You know what that means, right? Cheers to stout season! It may be getting cold outside, but the appropriately named Burnt City Brewing in Chicago is one of many brewers ready to combat each cold front with robust beer — take that, Jack! If you are in Chicagoland or Alabama, get ready to enjoy some Freight Handler Milk Stout. And on New Year’s Eve – Burnt City and Arcade Brewery are ready to help Chicagoans ring in 2017.
Canned in Burnt City Brewing’s production facility on the South Side of Chicago, this newest offering supplements the brewery’s year-round portfolio that includes Dick The Butcher Pale Ale, Face Melter Hibiscus IPA, And Balloon Boy Farmhouse Wheat Ale. Freight Handler Milk Stout (5% ABV) enjoys full body and rich, chocolate notes, complex maltiness, and a touch of subtle lactose sweetness.
