Enjoy a gift-wrapped Christmas brew in anticipation of the holiday season
Upslope Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale will be placed under the tree just in time for the holidays this year. The Limited Release Belgian-style Dubbel—brewed with holiday spices—is currently available in canned, 12-ounce four packs at liquor stores across Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Montana, while supplies last.
“The recipe for this beer is based upon an old homebrew recipe of mine that I used to take to holiday parties,” says Upslope Founder, Matt Cutter. “In 2009, the brewery adopted it as our holiday Limited Release, ‘Christmas Ale.’ It’s a spiced holiday ale brewed with Abbey Ale Yeast that’s sure to keep drinkers plenty warm through the holiday season.”
The beer pours in true Christmas fashion, colored a deep ruby red with an off-white headstand that laces the glass with each sip. A blend of holiday spices and dark dried fruit creates a distinctive holiday aroma, complemented by spicy notes from the Abbey Ale Yeast. The 8.2% ABV Christmas Ale is characterized by a medium body and a rich malt profile.
In the spirit of giving, Upslope’s Christmas Ale is “pre-wrapped” in a festive red ribbon-striped can, making it the perfect gift for spreading holiday cheer. Don’t put off sharing this brew, as it is only available for a limited time!
