MILWAUKEE (March 14, 2011) – Lakefront Brewery and Tenth and Blake Beer Company put the old saying “two heads are better than one” to the test recently, and, appropriately, the result is a beer with a creamy, foam head that lasts about twice as long as most beers. The unique, multi-brewer collaboration produced Oaty Goat Doppelbock, a surprisingly smooth, midnight black dopplebock brewed with Weyerman dark Munich malts and Dingemans Special B malts. Contributing to the beer’s smoothness is 90 pounds of wild oats per batch.
“We’re both sponsors of the Wisconsin Restaurant Expo, along with Beer Capitol Distributing, so we figured why not get together, have some fun and make something special for the show,” said Russ Klisch, president of Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery, which opened in 1987. “We enjoyed the collaboration, and I think those attending the Expo will enjoy the Oaty Goat Doppelbock.”
Tenth and Blake Beer Company is the independent craft and import division of MillerCoors, which launched last August. Its brewing facilities include the 10th Street Brewery in Milwaukee, the Sandlot Brewery in Denver, AC
Golden in Golden, Colorado and the Leinenkugel’s Brewery in Chippewa Falls, Wis. Greg Walter, brew master at Milwaukee’s 10th Street Brewery, teamed with Klisch on the creation.
Oaty Goat Doppelbock features 6.1 percent Alcohol by Volume and 18 IBUs, which is appropriate for the style. The beer will be available at the Wisconsin Restaurant Expo March 21-23. Lakefront Brewery will also offer a VIP sneak preview this Friday, while supplies last.
