Revolutionizing Dessert-Style Beers: McAllister Brewing Co.'s New Proprietary Lactose-Free Process

By Seth Montz - March 5, 2023


In recent years, dessert-style beers have become increasingly popular among craft beer enthusiasts, with lactose being a common ingredient to achieve the desired creaminess and sweetness. However, for lactose-intolerant beer lovers, these styles have been off-limits, until now.


McAllister Brewing Company has recently announced a revolutionary new process to create lactose-free dessert-style beers. By utilizing a proprietary system and process, they have developed a way to make these beers taste just as fresh, juicy, and flavorful as their lactose-containing counterparts, without any of the negative side effects for those with lactose intolerance.


This breakthrough is achieved by using a unique flavor amplifying system that enhances the natural flavors of the ingredients, including hops and other adjuncts. By infusing the beer with a carefully selected blend of hops, the flavors are amplified and balanced, resulting in a beer that is bursting with flavor and aroma. The system is known as the Sudz Capacitor.


The first five beers on tap that utilize this new process are the Milkshake IPA, Orange Creamsicle Milkshake IPA, Pineapple Milkshake IPA, Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert Stout, and Peach Sour. Each beer is a unique and delicious take on the dessert-style beer trend, with its own distinct flavors and aromas.


The Milkshake IPA is a perfect balance of sweetness and hoppiness, with a creamy mouthfeel that gives it the signature milkshake-like quality. The Orange Creamsicle Milkshake IPA combines the refreshing citrus flavors of orange with creamy vanilla, resulting in a beer that is reminiscent of the classic frozen treat. The Pineapple Milkshake IPA is a tropical delight, with juicy pineapple and hazy, hoppy goodness.



For those who prefer a richer, more decadent beer, the Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert Stout is a must-try. This beer is like drinking a liquid Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that perfectly balances the chocolate and peanut butter flavors. Finally, the Peach Sour is a tart and refreshing beer, with the sweetness of ripe peaches and sourness that is perfectly balanced.


Overall, McAllister Brewing Company's new process for creating lactose-free dessert-style beers is a game-changer for the industry. Beer lovers who have been unable to enjoy these styles can now indulge without any worries. With the release of McAllister's Milkshake IPA, Orange Creamsicle Milkshake IPA, Pineapple Milkshake IPA, Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert Stout, and Peach Sour, McAllister Brewing Company has solidified its place as a pioneer in the craft beer world, delivering fresh and innovative beers that are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
