Wynwood Brewing Company (Miami, Florida) will officially kick off the holiday season by hosting a special, limited release event for Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout beginning at noon on November 24 – Black Friday.
The folks at Wynwood Brewing created Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout to mimic the flavors of “Coquito”, a traditional Puerto Rican holiday beverage “known as Puerto Rico’s eggnog, made with rum, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves.” Their brewers pulled this off by crafting a Rum Barrel-aged Imperial Milk Stout that was then finished off with toasted coconut, cinnamon, clove and vanilla beans. The resulting Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout comes together as a unique treat that is meant to serve as the perfect beer to share with friends and family this holiday season.
“We’ve been wanting to make this beer for a long time,” said Wynwood Brewing Founder Luis Brignoni. “Coquito is something my family always enjoyed during the holidays. Now that we have more production space to brew and barrel-age, we can offer a taste of this Puerto Rican tradition to our fans.”
Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout will officially release in Wynwood Brewing’s Tap Room at noon on Friday, November 24. Those who attend this Limited Release Event will have the option to enjoy Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout on draft or purchase 750ml crowler “shorty” cans for $20 each. In addition to the beer release, this event “will also feature a special brewery tour of Miami’s first craft production brewery showcasing the barrel-aging process for Coqui-To.” If you happen to be in the area on Black Friday, make sure you swing by the brewery and get into the holiday spirit by raising a glass of Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout with the crew at Wynwood Brewing. Prost!
