Saanich brewery releases holiday stout

Saanich’s Twa Dogs Brewery is getting in the holiday spirit.

Twa Dogs has released its first Christmas beer – a Chili Chocolate Milk Stout that pairs perfectly with the flavours of Christmas. Head brewer Nicole MacLean was given free rein to create a rich and flavourful beer to be enjoyed over the holiday season.

MacLean joined Twa Dogs Brewery earlier this year, coming from BrewDog craft brewery in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. She designed and brewed Chili Chocolate Milk Stout as her first release with Twa Dogs.

The Chili Chocolate Milk Stout is a rich, malty beer that finishes with a bit of heat.

“I wanted to focus on a good malt body and I combined some of my favourite malts with oats to enhance the mouth feel of the beer, giving it a nice creamy body and head,” said MacLean. “The addition of Ecuadorian Cacao Nibs added a great dark chocolate flavour.”

Twa Dogs Chocolate Chili Milk Stout is available in bombers and on tap at the brewery, at the Garrrick’s Head Pub in Victoria and in a number of private liquor stores.
