New Holland Brewing Company (Holland, Michigan) has announced that Dragon’s Milk White, a Bourbon Barrel-aged White Stout, will officially join the Dragon’s Milk family in February.
Developed as “a nod to New Holland Brewing’s 20 years of barrel-aging expertise and commitment to innovation in the name of flavor”, Dragon’s Milk White is a “full flavored . . . hazy, golden” White Stout that offers “strong notes of vanilla, cocoa, coffee roast, and oak from its time in bourbon barrels.” Despite its lighter appearance and ABV (6%), Dragon’s Milk White “promises to appeal to traditional stout drinkers as well as those who simply are looking for a well-crafted, full-flavored and accessible drinking experience.”
Speaking of accessibility, Dragon’s Milk White will be the first Dragon’s Milk family member available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans. This new packaging format now makes it possible for the Dragon’s Milk experience to “be enjoyed in more places and on more occasions, giving fans even more opportunity to ‘share a legend.'”
“The white stout is an entirely new Dragon’s Milk experience, pulling many of the same awesome flavor notes that our fans have come to love in our original bourbon barrel-aged stout, but presenting them in a way that is completely unique,” said Dominic Bergquist, brand manager for Dragon’s Milk. “It’s not simply a visual play. The hazy golden color is really just the first cue that this beer is going to be unique, with the aromas and flavors that follow making it something we feel is truly special to behold.”
Dragon’s Milk White will officially debut in New Holland’s pubs in Grand Rapids and Holland, Michigan on February 8 and is scheduled to enter full distribution shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of New Holland’s distribution area. Prost!
