Lakewood Brewing will release a Valentine’s Day edition of their beloved milk stout Temptress just in time for Hallmark’s favorite holiday.
On Monday, February 10, select bars and restaurants around Dallas-Fort Worth will start serving a limited quantity of a raspberry-infused Temptress, dubbed Raspberry Temptress.
I’ll let that sink in for a quick sec.
The raspberries are said to add a little tartness to the sweet milk stout with an ABV of 9.1%. In honor of the beer, Lakewood has designed some special Raspberry Temptress glasses.
According to Lakewood’s announcement today, Raspberry Temptress went out to the following locations this week:
