We’re definitely not sleeping on the Windowsill today!

Robert Frost (1874-1963) was one America’s greatest poets. In 1922, after spending all night writing a poem named ‘New Hampshire,’ he took a few moments and wrote one of his most famous works of all time. That poem, ‘Stopping by Woods on A Snowy Evening,’ is about a traveler who stops to admire the snow while making his way through the woods. It contains this famous stanza: “The woods are lovely, dark and deep / But I have promises to keep / And miles to go before I sleep / And miles to go before I sleep.” Appropriate for Stout Season, I think!

Like those woods in the poem, the Miles To Go Before I Sleep is oh so lovely with its dark, deep color. It’s brewed with lots of roasted malts, lactose, peanut butter and chocolate. It’s robust, sweet and malty—one of the best stouts I have ever had. Tree House Brewing Company’s Nate Lanier says he brewed this imperial milk stout for his wife, Lauren, because she loves peanut butter cups, and he loves her, and “she deserves the world.” What a guy! I want their marriage to last forever, because everything he brews in her honor is incredibly delicious!
