Not to stereotype but I would have thought that a Baklava based beer would have come from a place with a large Eastern European contingent. But this new pastry stout comes from Deschutes and it actually sounds quite delicious based on the special ingredients list as well as the tri-barrel approach.

XMAS BEER – 21st Amendment Winter Warmer

I talked about Craft Cans now here is a can filled with a winter warmer.

Here is what the fine folks at 21st Amendment have to say about their winter seasonal…”Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark ruby brown, English-style ale and then improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation. During Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, Fireside Chat will brighten the faces of those who enjoy it, near the hearth or at the table. Its subtle blend of spices balances the malty ale and will make this a foodie’s favorite, as it pairs perfectly with holiday meals.”
