Brewing for the Holidays

Holiday Beer Brewing

As the days get shorter and the holidays near, per tradition, we spent Saturday brewing the first of two beers we’ll be giving away during the season. A cool gray day was the perfect accompaniment to the brewing of our first attempt at a Christmas beer. The beer we brewed is an English ale, dark amber in hue and spiced with orange peals, cinnamon, all-spice, vanilla and wildflower honey. As I write this she’s actively fermenting away at 68°F. Next Sunday we’ll brew our second offering which will be an imperial stout with a nice hop bite.

Drink up.
