Formerly brewed at Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Sierra (the NATO / phonetic alphabet letter “S”) is the next up in our series of Brewers’ Select beers. Sierra is Weyerbacher’s take on a milk stout.
Starting off with a healthy dose of Maris Otter as a base we integrate some roasted barley, plenty of chocolate and munich malts, a touch of flaked oats and some milk sugar (lactose) to balance out this roasty treat.
The dark chocolate and roastiness stemming from the malts along with the slight residual cream-like sweetness left from the milk sugar make for a complementary flavor that’s sure to please the stout lover and even those not yet familiar with this old English style of ale.
