East Brother Beer Co. Head Brewer Paul Liszewski Talks Oatmeal Stout

We spoke with East Brother Beer Co. Head Brewer Paul Liszewski about Oatmeal Stout.

BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
These recipes were developed by Co-Founder Chris Coomber. It is my job to ensure that we flawlessly execute those recipes with pride and precision. We evaluate every batch and have tweaked the recipes as a part of our continual improvement philosophies.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
The roast and chocolate malts with a smooth mouthfeel really make this a great stout. Overall, it is a light stout that doesn’t fill you up and breaks that preconceived notion that stouts are heavy and filling. The Oatmeal Stout tastes great out of the fridge, out of the beer engine or at room temp, and the malt really shines.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
The Oatmeal Stout would make a great breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert beer. Tastes great icy cold and at room temperature. Makes for great ice cream floats too, assuming that there is a desert island ice cream available too.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Roasty, toasty, chocolaty, yum.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
I’d start with some BBQ ribs and baked beans or chicken with mole sauce then move onto dessert of a rich, dense chocolate cake. Maybe even throw in an Oatmeal Stout float to boot.
