Oh, Yeah, Oreo-Flavored Beer Is a Real Thing
Milk and cookies? How about beer and cookies?
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!
The beer, manufactured in 16-ounce cans, was available in limited quantities beginning last month — only 60-80 cases were produced — and has already sold out.
Oreos are so darned versatile. You can eat them in a variety of ways, paint them as great works of art and now get hammered with them.

We’re guessing Hornswoggler sold out because there was demand based on the curiosity factor. Oreos and beer sound like they go together about as well as peanut butter and pickled herring, so whether or not this catches on remains to be seen. Chips Ahoy Lager, Nutter Butter Ale and E.L. Fudge Stout don’t exactly sound mouth-watering, but, hey, maybe there’s an untapped market salivating over the possibility.
