Fairstate Coop is a brewery based in Minneapolis and one of its standout beers is the vegan Neapolitan stout, which is notably recognized for its vegan elements. The beer is a whiskey barrel-aged stout and as the name suggests, it nods to the classic ice cream combination, 'Neapolitan.'
Along with the combination of a stout, there are rich notes of the traditional vanilla flavor, chocolate, and strawberry. As traditional stouts incorporate milk sugar to give it the sweetness and velvety texture, Fairstate Coop creates its Neapolitan stout with no milk and is lactose-free for inclusive palettes. The flavor profile is sweet, malty, and fruity, making it the perfect pairing with desserts.
