Having this be the Friday before Christmas, I chose some perfect treats to make the season brighter. Both are great to share or enjoy by yourself, either way, you will be as jolly as the big man himself who flies around Christmas Eve. Hope everyone has a Happy Holidays and we will see you next year!
And Now, the Brews
|Great Lakes Brewing | Christmas Ale | Ale Brewed with Spices|
|One of my favorite wintertime releases. This beer is light in body and mouthfeel. The smell of cinnamon floods your nose. The first sip is a blast of holiday cheer and Christmas dreams. This brew is full of cinnamon, ginger and great flavors of honey. Perfectly balanced and perfect in a glass next to the fire.|
|6 pk Bottle | 7.5% ABV | 30 IBUs|
|Able Brewing | Big Blk Wolf | Imperial Stout|
|Able Brewing, Minneapolis’s next hot brewery has done it with this one. Packaged in 6 pack 8oz cans, it really is the perfect size for this beer. For being 9.8%, it’s not hot on your palate but will warm you from the inside out. Definitely has a fuller mouthfeel than the regular Blk Wlf Stout. Huge, notes of dark chocolate. It is just so dang good! Santa might prefer this instead of Milk.|
