Barrel Breed: Christmas Ale 2017

Our 2017 Christmas Ale was brewed to the same recipe as our AIBA Gold Medal winning triple IPA, before being aged for three months in fresh American whisky barrels.

The palate is mildly sweet with toffee and vanilla notes. A bold hopping regime of Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe makes itself known in the cleansing bitterness. Ideally served chilled to 8-10 degrees and enjoyed from a tulip beer glass or red wine glass. Drink fresh in December 2017, ideally on Christmas Day with worthy companions, friends and family.
