Many of you probably do not know this, but in October 2017 prior to joining the team here at Whitehorse our head brewer Mike Fahy lost his late wife to ovarian cancer. Her name was Darcel and she was just 33 years old, although she had a very long 7 ½ year battle with this terrible disease she never stopped fighting and never lost her wonderful spirit. Last year as a homebrewer, Mike made a coffee milk stout in her honor as it was one of her favorite styles and something she had requested prior to her passing but unfortunately did not get to make. This milk stout is named “With You Always” from Killswitch Engage song “Always”. This beer is inspired by Darcel and is meant to honor everyone that we have lost, not just to ovarian cancer.
Release of "With You Always" Coffee Milk Stout
Brewed in honor of everyone we have lost, this coffee milk stout is meant to be a remembrance of our loved ones. Inspired by Mike’s late wife, Darcel, this traditional stout has the addition of milk sugar to add a touch of sweetness to balance out the bitterness of roasted coffee. With a smooth, creamy finish this combines a favorite morning beverage with a highly loved evening beverage to make it the perfect blend to use in toasting and honoring those who have passed.
Old Towne Distillery from Stoystown, PA will be at the event serving cocktails for anyone who is not a beer drinker. They will be donating a portion of their sales to the cause.
