Holiday Cheers – Day 30 – Winterhopfen from Landskron

Tine to get presents onto the sleigh or in the case of this beery advent calendar, for the beer to get loaded onto the truck. We might just need some German engineering here so we need to hook up Santa with brewery Landskron.

“The elegant festival beer for special enjoyment in the wintertime. A beer with a balanced aroma, in which the malt notes are harmoniously paired with floral hop scents. It promises a pleasure with a full, round body, in which a fine hop bitterness is perfectly integrated, and which ends with a full malt body.”

Holiday Cheers – Day 29 – Mulled Memories from Bottle Logic

Getting near the end here, let’s add in a new beer from Bottle Logic Brewing and one of their pastry-esque beers with a memory, a Mulled Memory.

“Apple Brandy Barrel-Aged Mulled Golden Ale with elegant aromas of wintery apple cider curl from the glass of this Apple Brandy Barrel-Aged Golden Ale. A subtle wisp of lactose twists through the base, tethering the delicate apple character to a warming blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and citrus peel.”

Holiday Cheers – Day 26 – Do I Even Like Eggnog? from Kane Brewing

Yes, I am firmly in the pro-nog camp.  What I am not so sure of is an egg nog IPA.  But if presented with Do I Even Like Eggnog? from Kane Brewing, I would grate the nutmeg and give it a sip.

“This festive IPA was brewed with pilsner, wheat, oats, and lactose, and lightly hopped in the whirlpool. After dry-hopping, this holiday beer was conditioned on ground cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and bourbon-soaked vanilla.

Do I Even Like Eggnog? pours with a festive hazy gold color and combines a creamy citrus hop expression with notes of vanilla, nutmeg, and light bourbon holiday spice.”

Holiday Cheers – Day 25 – Imaginary Friends from Everybody’s Brewing

Let’s have another Winter IPA because, well, everybody’s doing it. Literally, Everybody’s Brewing has Imaginary Friends.

“A true winter warmer. There is just enough body and hops in this beer to take the chill offf. Crystal and Chocolate Malta give this beer a wonderful Ruby color and a medium to full mouth feel. Generous amounts of Simcoe, citra, cascade hops really bring this beer to life!”

Holiday Cheers – Day 24 – Elated Winter IPA from Hi-Wire Brewing

One week till the big day, time to say, get elated? With a winter IPA from Hi-Wire Brewing in Asheville.

“A balanced and hoppy ale perfect for snuggling up in front of the fire or getting outside on a snowy day. Celebrate the season with an India Pale Ale that doesn’t lack for pine and citrus peel notes from Michigan Chinook & Idaho 7 hops balanced by sticky caramel and toasted bread flavors from a carefully crafted malt bill.”
