Goodwood’s Shoot Your Eye Out Chocolate Milk Stout has become a popular seasonal release over the last few years. Inspired by the holiday classic film A Christmas Story, this stout has flavors of chocolate, malt, and a milky smooth sweetness, plus a name that hits you right in the childhood nostalgia – what’s not to love? Previously available only on draft at Goodwood taprooms, Shoot Your Eye Out is back in cans and ready to go home with you for the holidays.
Shoot Your Eye Out clocks in at 6.9%, with 29 IBU. Chestnuts balance out the sweetness of the liquid chocolate, and lactose provides the silky finish. Goodwood COO of Brewing and Bourbon Quinton Nolan says of the brew, “This beer perfectly pairs with family and friends gathered around a fireplace. Just be careful or you’ll shoot your eye out.” Good advice!
No beer release is complete without a party! On Friday, December 2, Goodwood will celebrate Shoot Your Eye Out and all things Christmas with a special gathering at the Nulu taproom. There will be specialty cocktails like “Fra-gee-lay” (a chocolate cherry masterpiece), themed games with prizes, and plenty of Shoot Your Eye Out on draft and in cans. Don’t miss it, or you’ll say “Fuuuuuudge!”
