For the third time in current months, Lord Hobo Brewing Co. is launching a regionally impressed collaboration beer.
What Lord Hobo began final 12 months with a Grillo’s Pickles beer prolonged to a chocolate mint ice cream stout, by way of a collaboration with the ice cream firm J.P. Licks, final month. I used to be shocked after I tasted that beer in December to seek out the mint taste to be delicate, fairly than overpowering, and for an ice-cream-inspired beer to truly be fairly mild on the palate. Paradoxically, this strikes me as a bonus beer has over including flavorings to spirits like whiskey or vodka, which grow to be cloying fairly shortly. There’s sufficient heft in most beers for flavors like chocolate, fruit, and even pickle brine to work.
New this month is a collaboration with Fashionable Pastry, the family-owned, North Finish staple established on Hanover Road in 1930. Modeled after the Italian cake, Tiramisu Stout was chosen by the Fashionable Pastry and Lord Hobo people as a substitute of a cannoli or cookie-inspired brew, although these had been additionally thought of.
“Tiramisu is essentially the most beloved cake at Fashionable Pastry,” says Aubree Karls, Lord Hobo’s advertising director, who additionally mentions Fashionable’s infamous lobster-tail pastry as an merchandise that didn’t make the ultimate reduce.
Lord Hobo’s Tiramisu Stout is brewed with chocolate malt, Tiramisu flavoring, and occasional focus and weighs in at 6 p.c alcohol by quantity. The addition of lactose provides the beer a creamy mouthfeel. You possibly can pair the richness of Fashionable’s precise Tiramisu with this equally wealthy beer for a decadent dessert, or crack a can by itself and recreate the magic of that North Finish deal with individually.
“In crafting these dessert stouts, our aim is to make the beer approachable and easy-drinking for our prospects,” says Karls. “We attempt to carefully align with the respective types whereas making certain a easy ingesting expertise that invitations you to take pleasure in multiple.”
Lord Hobo and Fashionable Pastry’s Tiramisu Stout is obtainable in four-packs, and at Lord Hobo’s Woburn and Boston breweries, beginning now. Lord Hobo’s subsequent native collaboration will likely be a lemon Italian pilsner in collaboration with Fabrizia, a family-owned spirits and baking enterprise primarily based in New Hampshire.
