This stout beer pays tribute to the Butternuts Brewery's former life as a dairy farm. It's a more drinkable version of the Stout breed than its heavy, boorish and smelly European sisters. We use lactose sugar for body and mouthfeel; not too strong, not too viscous at 4.9% abv. Unlike a true bovine it has a malty, roasty aroma and a dry finish but no tail or teats, and leaves no unsightly cow pies laying around the yard for you to step in.
Nestled in the beautiful Butternut Valley on a 120-acre dairy farm in Garratsville, Butternuts prides itself on creating no-nonsense beers made with simple, natural ingredients that combine American-style farmhouse ales with German, English and Belgian influences.
