Terrapin gets gangster with Frozen Pints and a new Reserve Series!



A White Chocolate Moo-Hoo Milk Stout and Moo-Hoo Mint Craft Beer Ice Cream? Dizzaaamn!

I have always been a fan of stouts—especially the imperial ones—but when it comes to those in the 6 percent ABV range, the Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout by Terrapin Beer Company is one of my favorites. Besides how super smooth it is and the subtle homage to my favorite chocolate drink as a child (Yoo-Hoo), this is one silky smooth, chocolately sipper brewed with cocoa nibs from Olive & Sinclair Choclate Company out of Nashville.
Well now Moo-Hoo is taken to new heights thanks to the brewery’s new Reserve Series, where they are milking a new version of this stout in 22-ounce bottles hand-dipped in wax, along with an ice cream version by local creamery Frozen Pints! Check it:
·         the White Chocolate Moo-Hoo brewed with, you guessed it, white chocolate still maintains a merciful 6.1 percent ABV potency but reigns imperial in flavor. It’s hard as hell to get so grab a bottle quick!

·         And then there's the Moo-Hoo Mint craft beer ice cream hooked up by Frozen Pints fusing Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout with added notes of peppermint at 2.6 percent ABV! Crazy, right? "We were excited and very flattered when Frozen Pints approached us about being their first local brewery to collaborate on an ice cream to be released in stores,” says my girl Julia Weckback, the marketing director for Terrapin. “Moo-Hoo [Chocolate Milk Stout] has a built a devoted fan base since its release in 2010, and fans will be delighted to discover that they can enjoy their favorite beer with both a mint twist and a spoon!" It hits the shelves of various craft beer retailers today, November 20, so scoop some up.

·         There’s also another Reserve sipper to look for soon using the awesomely coffee-infused Wake-n-Bake Imperial Stout, the Cinnamon Roll'd Wake-n-Bake! Sounds good as hell doesn't it?

I love the Holiday season when it comes to brew! These joints I just posted above are a good freakin' reason why!

Cheers!

Ale
