From the guys at Full Tilt Brewing (FTB), who brought you Fleet Street Raspberry Wheat and Patterson Pumpkin, comes their winter brew—Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout.

The Baltimore brewery has partnered with DeBaufre Bakeries to produce a rich, creamy sweet stout balancing two guilty pleasures of alcohol and cookies in one glass. 

“When it came time for winter beer, it made sense to make something so iconic to Baltimore. I just can’t believe that it hasn’t been done before,” said FTB co-owner Nick Fertig. 

The process begins in the garage of Fertig’s cousin and FTB co-owner Dan Baumiller. The two test and sample flavors before sending the recipe to Peabody Heights Brewery in Waverly for mass production. Their latest creation is a chocolate stout base infused with vanilla to dilute the bitterness for a balanced flavor. 

The Admiral’s Cup is hosting the launch with a keg tapping ceremony on Friday, November 15. The first pint will pour at 7 p.m. with $5 drafts garnished with a Berger Cookie flowing the rest of the night. 

Bars across the region will sell the craft beer throughout the winter. If demand is high enough during the season, Charm City can expect the brew to be year-round.
