The Bruery ‘9 Ladies Dancing’
Allocated item, made with vanilla bean, cocoa nibs, and coffee. Tastes like tiramisu.
Mikkeller ‘Winbic’– A Saison, spontan ale hybrid, this wild ale is new to the Mikkeller Christmas lineup.
“It comes in a magnum [750mL] bottle and it is awesome.”- Brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø
Claque Pépin Cidre Bouche– A classic Normandy Cider, they allow the apples to fall from
the trees before they harvest them, creating an oxidized, nutty funk flavor.
Anchorage Brewing ‘Whiteout’– An ale brewed with spices and aged in Chardonnay barrels.
Undergoes three fermentations: one in tank with Belgian yeasts; a second in French Chardonnay
barrels with Brettanomyces; a third in bottle for natural carbonation.
Trois Dames Winter Sour Ale– Super allocated, this American Wild Sour is brewed with oranges
and ginger during the boiling and in the lagering process. Spicy, lightly sour, and a blend of wit and Saison aged in wood for six months.
To Ol ‘Shameless Santa’– A Belgian strong Red Ale, this caramelly, malty, deliciously
bready brew goes great with cookies left for Santa and roasted marshmallows.
