Notes: What is MilkStave? Well man... it’s an arc. It’s an evolution through a looking glass. It’s a funny caveman documentary played backwards on mute. MilkStave is the logical and patient extension of our hilarious Milkshake IPA series. .

To create MilkStave, we brewed a batch of our Milkshake IPA, fermented the batch entirely in a French oak foudre with a blend of our Magickal microflora, and then hit the pause button. MilkStave spent over five months in oak, naturally developing acid complexity. Once MilkStave had become pleasantly tart and structured, we dosed it with heaps of fresh pineapple and guava purée, sparking a secondary fermentation. Towards the tail end of refermentation, we conditioned it on plenty of Madagascar vanilla beans and dry hopped it intensely with Mosaic and Citra. MilkStave is bottle conditioned in brown 500ml bottles for a beautiful soft and natural carbonation. This beer is so pleasant and pillowy. Notes of tropical candy, black lime, cotton candy, passionfruit, fresh pressed Sauv Blanc, and guava whipped cream.

T- Tart, lemons, pineapple, some guava, oak, some vanilla, touch of lactose, nice hoppiness

M- Smooth, a little creamy, light to medium body

O- A very nice take on a Milkshake IPA, good fruitiness and hoppiness with some of the great sour flavors Tired Hands does well. People that think Shambolic and Milkshake together sound great will love this beer.
