Cigar City to release The Milkman and The Milkmaid

Cigar City has been at the collaborations again, and this time they’ve brought in Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Richmond, VA. The release night is going to be this week, and as usual, the guest brewery is bringing some rare-to-Florida beers.

From Cigar City:

This Thursday at 6pm, we will release bottles of The Milkmaid White Stout, a collaboration with our friends from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Richmond, VA. The Milkmaid is our first venture into brewing a white stout. The concept is a beer that’s light in color but deceives you into thinking you’re drinking a stout. We added cacao nibs and coffee beans from Buddy Brew to emulate these flavors, and added a combination of hop varieties that impart notes of chocolate and licorice. Bottles are $10/each, one case limit.

Along with bottles of The Milkmaid, the guys from Hardywood will be in town and they’re bringing down some ultra-rare kegs to tap for the event. They don’t distribute to Florida, so you’re looking at a taplist you won’t find anywhere else in the state.
