The holidays are top of the mind now that December has arrived. Settle in for frigid temps this season with plenty of good cheer and good friends ever near. Breckenridge Brewery’s Christmas Ale captures that extra flavor and strength we’re currently looking for in a winter warmer. It’s a bit of bottled joy to the world!
At over 7% alcohol, this festive, full-bodied mahogany brew has a sturdy texture and rich flavors of caramel and chocolate. Think of Breck Brew’s holiday seasonal as the fermented equivalent of a good fire! The brewery itself is making strides towards plans to unveil its new 85,000 sq. ft., $35 million brewery and Farmhouse restaurant in Littleton, CO. That’s all slated to open in April of 2015 — with the commission of the new brewhouse scheduled for mid-May.
Two acres of the 12-acre plot of land will be a dedicated hop field, allowing for Breckenridge Brewery to produce new fresh-hopped varieties. Additionally, there will be an organic vegetable garden, which the Farmhouse restaurant will utilize for a true farm-to-table dining experience…how cool!
All this is to say that with a big boost coming in production, even more varieties of experimental beers will become increasingly available in places across the country–including places which previously may not have carried this particular craft line. We’ll cheers to that!
