A brewing company in Virginia has released a craft beer fermented in hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies.
The Veil Brewing Co., based in Richmond, took their “Hornswoggler” milk stout and conditioned it using the Oreo cookies to create the “Hornswoggler with Oreos.”
“That’s right. You heard right. We took our 7 percent robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler and conditioned it on hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies,” the brewery said in an Instagram post. “If you like Oreo cookies, this is a must try.”
The cookie-infused beer was released in limited quantities of 16 ounce cans on Jan. 24 and quickly sold out, although small amounts are available on draft at the brewery.
Those who were able to secure one of the 60 to 80 cases that the brewery released were encouraged to keep the beer cold and drink it fresh due to the amounts of fermentable sugars left over in the final product.
