A brewing company in Virginia, USA has released a craft beer fermented in hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies.
The Veil Brewing Co., based in Richmond, took their “Hornswoggler” milk stout and conditioned it using the Oreo cookies to create the “Hornswoggler with Oreos.”
“That’s right. You heard right. We took our 7 percent robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler and conditioned it on hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies,” the brewery said in an Instagram post. “If you like Oreo cookies, this is a must try.”

This Tuesday January 24th will be the debut of Hornswoggler with Oreos! 😳 That's right. You heard right. We took our 7% robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler and conditioned it on hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies. If you like Oreo cookies, this is a must try. *THERE MAY BE SOME RESIDUAL FERMENTABLE SUGARS FROM THE COOKIES IN THE BEER. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST KEEPING THESE CANS AS COLD AS POSSIBLE AT ALL TIMES. WE ALSO SUGGEST CONSUMING THIS BEER AS FRESH AS POSSIBLE FOR THE MOST INTENSE OREO CHARACTER POSSIBLE.* Shooting for approx 55-80 cases. $17+tax/4-pack. 1x 4-pack per person. *CASES PACKAGED AND LIMITS SUBJECT TO CHANGE* We will also be hiding 5x Golden Tokens(seen in front of the can) underneath the 4-pack holders(only on Hornswoggler cans). Find one of these coins and give it to a staff member behind the bar to get a free Golden Hornswoggler glass(as seen in the picture in this post; the Hornswoggler himself is on the back side of the glass)! This is the ONLY way to get your hands on this glass. We will never sell this glass. It is only acquired if you are the lucky few to find a Golden Token. We hope you guys can make it for Tuesday January 24th's can release. Doors open at 4pm! 🏄🏻
The cookie-infused beer was released in limited quantities of 16 ounce cans on Jan. 24 and quickly sold out, although small amounts are available on draft at the brewery.
Those who were able to secure one of the 60 to 80 cases that the brewery released were encouraged to keep the beer cold and drink it fresh due to the amounts of fermentable sugars left over in the final product.
