Oreo Beer Is Finally A Thing!

The Veil Brewing Company in Richmond, Virginia has announced their latest frankenbeer to hit the markets.

The Hornswoggler chocolate milk stout is 7-percent ABV and is fermented with one hundred pounds of Oreo cookies.

The Veil Brewing takes dessert beer to the next level. 'Hornswoggler' Choco milk stout, aged on Oreo cookies. There's even icing chunks


Due to the heavy load of cookies, beer makers at Veil state that there may be “some residual fermentable sugars from the cookies.” You know what that means? Oreo icing can be found floating around in your drink. The beer must be served very cold and consumed quickly in order to prevent the sugars from sticking!

Media hype around the new flavor was so large that customers had to wait over a hour to get their hands on the new beverage. Once some customers received their drink, they dipped Oreos into the flavored beer.

Customers were encouraged to purchase packs and cases of their new beer. In select cans, the brewery hid five Golden Tokens. If you were to find the coin, recipients would receive a free Golden Hornswoggler glass. Only people who found the token would be able to get their paws on this pretty little pint!


This Tuesday January 24th will be the debut of Hornswoggler with Oreos! ? That's right. You heard right. We took our 7% robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler and conditioned it on hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies. If you like Oreo cookies, this is a must try. *THERE MAY BE SOME RESIDUAL FERMENTABLE SUGARS FROM THE COOKIES IN THE BEER. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST KEEPING THESE CANS AS COLD AS POSSIBLE AT ALL TIMES. WE ALSO SUGGEST CONSUMING THIS BEER AS FRESH AS POSSIBLE FOR THE MOST INTENSE OREO CHARACTER POSSIBLE.* Shooting for approx 55-80 cases. $17+tax/4-pack. 1x 4-pack per person. *CASES PACKAGED AND LIMITS SUBJECT TO CHANGE* We will also be hiding 5x Golden Tokens(seen in front of the can) underneath the 4-pack holders(only on Hornswoggler cans). Find one of these coins and give it to a staff member behind the bar to get a free Golden Hornswoggler glass(as seen in the picture in this post; the Hornswoggler himself is on the back side of the glass)! This is the ONLY way to get your hands on this glass. We will never sell this glass. It is only acquired if you are the lucky few to find a Golden Token. We hope you guys can make it for Tuesday January 24th's can release. Doors open at 4pm! ??

At the brewing company, the bottles of the new beer are currently sold out. However, if you are in the Richmond area, the beer can still be found on tap. Well…at least for a little bit!

This is not the first time that alcohol has been mixed with a sugary treat. Early in 2016, a bar in San Francisco named Wildhawk created a breakfast cocktail which included Cocoa Puffs-infused negorini. Later in the year two Oregan-based breweries teamed up to create a Frosted Flakes infused beer. Called the “Catch a Tiger” drink, the IPA was fermented with over 25 pounds of the beloved cereal.

Getting your fill of sugary treats while getting a little buzzed? What more could one want in life?
