BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
Virginia, United States

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of flavors from milk chocolate and vanilla to honeycomb and cinnamon to a snap of ginger in the finish.

Deep, dark chocolate in color with a mahogany tint and a frothy, caramel colored head, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout offers aromatics of holiday spice originating from the ginger, and balanced with a generous dose of whole Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans and Vietnamese cinnamon. Milk sugar (lactose) contributes to the full body of this stout and tames its roasty character, while oats lend a silky quality. Enjoy fresh, or cellar for a special occasion. We hope Hardywood Gingerbread Stout contributes to your merriment this season.

Ben Franklin said God created beer because He wanted people to be happy.

God was on His game when He created this beer ...

Perfection on every level. Tastes of the best gingerbread you've ever eaten.
Pour it over some great vanilla ice cream and cry tears of joy.

Yes ... it IS that good.

Seek it out. Drink. Swoon, and thank Him (And the great folks at Hardywood!)
