A Grounded Pleasures & Athletic Club Brewery collaboration

The fine folk at the Athletic Club Brewery have created a choc vanilla milk stout in collaboration with us here at Grounded Pleasures. The two Craig's (yep - that's Craig, the head brewer at Athletic Club Brewery and Craig McKenzie, owner here at Grounded Pleasures) have been chatting about collaborating on interesting beers for some time now. This is the first (I'm sure of many) collaborations. This stout is smooth, chocolatey and balanced with an exquisite vanilla character. It is incredibly moorish, absolutely delicious. 

You can find this devious brew at the Athletic Club Brewery, on tap at the Mallow or at Coach House Ale. Not in Ballarat? Give the blokes at the Athletic Club Brewery a call and they can help you find your local stockist. This choc vanilla milk stout is limited edition though, so hop onto it!
