Brew of the Month: Nine Band 28th State Stout
Nine Bands brewers use oatmeal and flaked barley to give the 28th State Stout smooth creaminess and rich body. Made with specialty hops specifically chosen to represent Texas history, its dark roasted qualities are highlighted by chocolate malt and bring deep layers of flavor.
Pair this beer and other oatmeal stouts with fruity/creamy desserts, chocolate, game meats, pork or grilled items.
