Our very own All Grain Imperial Red Ale is the ultimate guest for the holidays, and year round, too!  Jolly Red Nose Holiday Ale brings the flavor and complexities of the season with hints of sweet toffee and clean malt paired with a balanced bitterness and floral, dark fruit from Loral Cryo Hops.  To bring all of these together, we add Juniper Berries to add a subtle, Christmas tree kick and Rosehips to bring the fruit around full circle.  What this gives you is a bright red holiday ale with an incredible balance boasting fruit and floral flavors backed by a light, pine-y sweetness and a moderate ABV that will keep everyone asking for another.

Our best selling Holiday beer recipe kit, this is another Holiday Ale made for those of us who aren’t huge on a spiced up Winter Warmer type holiday beer.  Instead of spices, Juniper Berries and Rosehips drive a dank-y fruit characteristic that everyone seems to absolutely love.  It’s got just enough crystal and roasted malts to leave just a hint of residual sugar and lightly roasted toffee, but not so much that it takes up the entire profile.  This lets the light additions of Juniper and Rosehips create a fruit forward and balanced holiday beer that is reminiscent of pine, fir and bright, red fruit both in the flavor and aroma.  Literally the perfect gift!
