What beer is made from goats milk?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

Goat milk is not typically used as an ingredient in beer production. While there are some experimental breweries that have produced beers incorporating goat milk, it is not a common practice in the industry.

However, there is one beer that specifically incorporates goat milk as a key ingredient, and that is the Goat Milk Stout from Beekman 1802. This unique stout was specifically designed to pair with Beekman 1802’s artisanal chèvre, which is made from goat milk. The idea behind this pairing is to create a harmonious balance between the flavors of the beer and the cheese.

The Goat Milk Stout is a rich and decadent stout that features the creamy and slightly tangy notes of goat milk. It has a smooth and velvety mouthfeel, with flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of sweetness. The addition of goat milk adds a unique twist to the beer, giving it a distinct character that sets it apart from other stouts.

Pairing this beer with Beekman 1802’s chèvre can enhance the tasting experience. The chèvre sampler pack available on the Beekman 1802 web store offers a variety of different flavors, allowing you to explore the range of tastes that can be achieved with goat milk cheese. The creamy and tangy nature of the chèvre complements the flavors of the stout, creating a delightful combination of flavors.

When enjoying the Goat Milk Stout with the chèvre sampler pack, I recommend trying to match the flavors and intensities of the cheese with the beer. For example, pairing a more mild and creamy chèvre with the stout can create a smooth and balanced experience, while a tangier and more robust chèvre can provide a contrast to the richness of the beer.

While goat milk is not a common ingredient in beer production, Beekman 1802’s Goat Milk Stout is a unique and delicious exception. Pairing it with Beekman 1802’s chèvre sampler pack allows you to explore the flavors and textures that can be achieved with goat milk in both beer and cheese, creating a truly memorable tasting experience.
