Peaks and Pints Lodge Meeting with Puyallup River Brewing Co.
January 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
OK, look. You’re up to your neck in it, right Puyallup River Brewing Mud Mountain Milk Stout? Too many demands to perform the fluffy head trick, thinking you and Guinness are tight. Too many trips through the effing blender with that no-good Dreyer’s. Straw? I know. You’re all up in the sugar and the sugar is all up in you and sometimes you spin and whirl and just can’t seem to find the bottom of the glass. Right?
Then there are those who quip, “Got Stout?” and laugh their ass off. Others mutter “udderly delightful” under their breath. Yea, we get it. You have been called the “mother’s milk” of beer. Your style has evolved over more than a century, and much of your character comes from the addition of milk sugar, aka lactose. You can hear the wiseasses remark, “I asked for a beer, not a cup of coffee with half a creamer cup and three packets of sugar.”
Egad. Oh, but look at their faces after one sip of your sweet bad self at the Puyallup River Brewing Co. Lodge Meeting Thursday, Jan. 26 at Peaks and Pints. Who’s laughing now?
You grabbed a silver medal at the 2015 Washington Beers Awards. You grabbed a bronze at the 2016 Washington Beer Awards. You grab every drinker when they taste your smooth as chocolate silk self. Fresh vanilla beans, cocoa nibs, oats, and six different specialty malts make you one of the easiest drinking dark beers on the planet.
So keep you head high, Puyallup River Brewing Mud Mountain Milk Stout. You’re going to kill it Jan. 26. Plus, your fellow Puyallup River brews will be in the house, including the new British Bronze Brown Ale.
