BATCH BREWING CO HOLGATE ELSIE THE MILK STOUT BREWHOUSE Elsie is made by combining unfermentable lactose with an incredibly complex malt bill. The result is a beer that’s sweet and smooth, dark and roasty, with gentle touches of chocolate, coffee and cream. Served on nitrogen to bring an incredibly soft mouthfeel to this sweet stout. 4.4% abv. www.batchbrewingco.com.au

Award-winning and ranks highly on critics’ top-beer lists. A perfect accompaniment to beef pies, winter braises and chocolate-based desserts. 6.0% ABV. www.holgatebrewhouse.com
