Dark Horse cream ale - with baby formula??

By John Liberty Kalamazoo Gazette MARSHALL — This may be a first.

 Dark Horse Brewing Co. owner and head brewer Aaron Morse talked about some of his most experimental batches since opening in late 2000.
He mentioned the Donut Beer — where he used 250 doughnuts from a Marshall bakery — and then said last week he started brewing a cream ale using baby formula instead of lactose.
"I actually e-mailed Enfamil to see if I could buy formula in bulk," Morse said. "I never heard back from them."
He said he plans to take it to the Extreme Beer Festival in Boston March 11-12.
He called it an "extreme session beer."
The beer is called "Uber Boober," Morse said.


  1. True "Uber Boober" cream ale would require human breastmilk - not artificial infant formula. Formula is processed from cow's milk so would be "Uber Udder"...

  2. Yuck!

    I'd rather breastmilk beer, but formula? Ewwww.
