Essence of Carrot Cake

Goat Rodeo Brewing is not afraid to dabble in the realm of the unknown when it comes to beer. With that in mind, I took my mother's carrot cake recipe and adapted it to the brewing process and the rest is history. A nut brown ale as the base with cascade hops, carrots, raisins, toasted coconut and walnuts, vanilla extract, a stick of cinnamon, and lactose (to serve as the "icing"). Release date- mid March. Alcohol %- 7.

Chrysomallo Katsika

Chrysomallo Katsika is Greek for Golden Goat. Why go Greek? Why not? Golden Goat is a beer inspired by the land of the Golden Fleece. It is an American blonde ale, with a Hellenic touch of grapes, walnuts, and laurel leaves (the source of bay spices). The sweet goodness of the Greeks is moderately bittered by a dash of Willamette hops. This premier beer of Goat Rodeo's southern affiliate will have an ABV of 6-7% and should be ready for consumption in March - the month that is in like a Lion, and out like a Goat.

Chocolate Coffee Milk Stout

Like many Americans I start my day with a cup of coffee. Like many Americans I have a sweet tooth for chocolate. Like many Americans I drink milk...gotta keep those bones strong. And like many Americans I enjoy beer. Just so happens this American decided to put all of that in the same vat. Mocha Moo Milk Stout will be ready in the middle of February for those Americans that like all of the above just like me. Prosit!
