Sweeties & Cuties Clementine Table Stout

Sweeties & Cuties brings together the classic combination of chocolate & orange in one delicious glass of beer. Brewed with a rich, chocolatey stout base we added copious amounts of freshly squeezed orange zest and juice along with even more freshly squeezed clementines and clementine zest to reach that flavour profile we were lookin’ for. Perfect for the holidays, or anytime in the winter, this low abv stout is what you’ve been waitin’ for.

Sam’s Take

When we reached out to the team for ideas for some beers to fill our 52 line-up, Dennis suggested a fruited table stout. From there, our brew team narrowed down the fruit selection to oranges & clementines. Considering that we were going to be releasing this beer in the holiday season, we were lookin’ for a “Terry’s Chocolate Orange” vibe. We didn’t want this to be an orange or chocolate bomb, but something well-balanced and easy to drink, so we set out to create a beer that was nicely chocolatey with just a hint of orange. Following a lovely base stout recipe designed by Brendan, I think we nailed it with Sweeties & Cuties.
