Streamlined Stout has everything you need to brew great beer and nothing you don’t. We’ve stripped away all the extras to reveal the very heart of a perfect Stout. The result? The most streamlined, straight-forward brewing experience ever. And a beer somewhere between a classic Irish stout and its American counterpart. Traditional roasted barley gives this beer its distinctive color and roasted flavors, while classic American hops provide the perfect balance of bitterness and hop flavor.
