HAD 140: Milk & Milk Alternatives

Milk. . . yeah, we’re just as surprised as you are. Well, it has been around since, well mammals, but we’ve been drinking other animals’ milk for centuries so maybe we take a closer look at it. Also people have been making alternatives to Milk, so we’ll look at this too and, while watching out for mustaches, Have a Drink.

  • Brand: Founders Brewing

  • Style: Old Ale brewed with Molasses and aged in Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrels

  • Strength: 12.7%

  • Other (IBU, description, etc.): 35; What tames an old ale like Curmudgeon? The tender embrace of oak and sweet maple, that’s what. The result is Curmudgeon’s Better Half, a harmonious matrimony of our deceptively smooth old ale brewed with molasses and time spent aging in bourbon barrels that have previously held maple syrup. Because all counterparts should be sweet, rich and utterly delicious.
