R&B Brewing in East Vancouver have announced the release of their new “Shake Your Fruity” milkshake IPA.
If you don’t know what a milkshake IPA is, it’s a new style of IPA with lactose and fruit added to it to make it smooth and fruity. I tried the “Two Straws” milkshake IPA from Twin Sails recently and loved it, so I’m excited to try this one. This is sure to be the craft beer craze of 2017!
East Van, BC – Looking to escape Winter and try out the latest trend in craft beers? Well look no further than R&B Brewing for their latest Mt Pleasant Limited Release #10 – Shake Your Fruity Milkshake IPA.
What is a Milkshake IPA? It’s not just a clever name — these are hoppy beers, brewed with oats and lactose sugar in order to produce a thick, milky, sweet, and often fruity brew. To the beer world, this brew style resembles a classic milkshake.
Rod Hughes, our head brewer mentions, “When we first heard of this style, we wanted to play around with recipes and make our own version. We brewed a small batch for the R&B Ale & Pizza house and it sold out so quickly we decided to brew more, bottle it, and release it as part of our Mount Pleasant Limited Series ”

STYLE: Milkshake IPA
