SweetWater Brewing Co. LLC, Atlanta, launched Non-Dairy Almond Milk Stout, a fresh take on classic dairy milk stouts packed with bold flavors, but with a unique twist, the company says. This new brew still has an authentic stout taste balanced with subtle almond sweetness to create the ultimate stout-drinking experience, it adds.

The Non-Dairy Almond Milk Stout joins SweetWater's seasonal beer lineup, with a new twist. By incorporating almond milk, SweetWater’s non-dairy brand adds a lightly sweetened tang to its stout, along with rich aromas of roasted coffee, milk and dark chocolates, according to the company.

“Our goal with crafting a dairy-free brew was to brew a milk stout for today’s consumer, one that breaks the mold from what we’re used to seeing on the market,” said Brian Miesieski, chief marketing officer at SweetWater, in a statement. “We’re very excited to introduce an innovative new stout that stays true to the tasty flavoring of traditional full-flavored authentic milk stouts, but future-forward given the non-dairy milks that consumers have taken to today.”

The new brew echoes the SweetWater motto of Don’t Float the Mainstream!, as its smooth profile and easy drinkability captures the adventurous 420 lifestyle the craft brewery famously embraces, but with a twist, the company says. SweetWater’s new stout features an ABV of 5.4%.

“Using real almonds and all-natural ingredients, we integrated the sweetness brought by the dark chocolate aromas and almond flavoring you find in a typical stout, but offset by the non-dairy ingredients and drinkability,” said Brewmaster Mark Medlin. “This stout will give craft beer lovers a tasty beer to savor for the fall and beyond, pairing well with the pub or any better beer-drinking occasion.”

SweetWater’s Non-Dairy Almond Milk Stout is a catch and release seasonal feature, available for a limited time in six-packs and a seasonal variety pack 12-ounce cans, as well as flowing on draft beginning through the end of 2021.
