Beer + Milk = Bilk


Following last year’s milk surplus in Japan, a brewery has found a way to put excess milk to good use.

Bilk.

It’s a bizarre combination of beer and milk.

I can’t see a drink like Bilk catching on here in Australia, but stranger things have happened I guess.

It’s apparently got quite a fruity flavour and the brewer thinks it will become popular with women.

Sounds suspiciously like an alcoholic version of Yakult to me.

I’m off to Japan late next month. If I come across a bottle of Bilk I promise to give it a try and tell you all about it.
