SEATTLE, WASH. – January 8, 2018 – Born at Redhook Brewlab in Seattle, My Oh My Caramel Macchiato Milk Stout, Redhook’s new spring seasonal, is a rich, espresso-driven milk stout with the perfect hint of caramel sweetness. Inspired by the popular caramel macchiato coffee drink, Redhook head brewer Nick Crandall first brewed the beer last year as an experimental recipe poured exclusively at Brewlab. To celebrate the introduction of My Oh My in 6-packs and draught in the Pacific Northwest, Redhook is hosting a launch party at Brewlab on Thursday, January 11 from 5-8pm.
“After opening our new brewery in Seattle last summer, we wanted to brew a beer that celebrates Seattle’s place at the epicenter of coffee and craft beer culture,” said Crandall. “We used a blend of dark roast coffee and dark malts to create a well-balanced beer with hints of chocolate, caramel and espresso. My Oh My was a big hit on tap when we first brewed it, so we decided to brew and package it as our first seasonal in 2018.”
With the release of My Oh My in bottles, Redhook is introducing a new artistic package design for its 2018 seasonal lineup: My Oh My kicks off the year and will be followed by Tangelic Halo, a tangerine IPA brewed with a quartet of hops this summer, and then Winterhook, Redhook’s winter beer, which will be an India Brown Lager this year. The new package designs highlight each beer’s unique ingredients and flavors through bold, colorful artwork that Redhook fans can get excited about in 2018.
“With our new lineup of seasonal beers, we wanted our packaging art to tell a story about the beer in the bottle,” said Angela Saunders, Redhook Brewery brand manager. “For the My Oh My label, we focused on the ingredients of this distinctive beer and used playful custom illustrations and a bold color scheme that put coffee and caramel front and center.”

Redhook opened Brewlab, an experimental10-barrel brewery and pub in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle in 2017.
Redhook’s beer lineup includes Big Ballard IPA, Bicoastal IPA, ESB, Long Hammer IPA and a variety of seasonal beers, including My Oh My Caramel Macchiato Milk Stout, Tangelic Halo Tangerine IPA, Winterhook, and more. Redhook beers are available on draught and in bottles and cans around the country.
