A Note on This Beer
The holidays come and go, but there’s no need to cease all merriment while there are still months of winter left. Especially if you save a boozy bottle of Santa’s Brass Barrel-Aged Barleywine!
This is THE BEER that "sleighed" all the other Barrel-Aged Strong Beer entries at last year’s Great American Beer Festival. And you can’t find it anywhere beyond Cali and Oregon, so just holding it is worth more celebration than the gold medal wreathed around it.
Which is why you better not tell Santa that you got a stash, either. He’s actually a HUGE Drake’s Brewing fan, and was waiting in line with everyone else at this year’s release!
With every Santa’s Brass vintage killing it on Untappd with 4+ ratings, you’d think Drake’s would keep the brew exactly the same, year after year. But they haven’t been a California staple since 1989 by playing it safe — Santa’s Brass 2019 is bigger and boozier than ever.
And at 4.29 on UT, it’s among the highest-rated Santa’s Brass vintages yet!
With a massive 15.1% ABV swimming in delectable vanilla and dark berry jam, you’ll want to make sure you’re couchin’ it before you take your first swig. Don’t fret; Bourbon and Port Barrel-Aging smooths out this massive pour with some extra tasty swirls of oak and sweetened liquor.
But make sure to keep this boozy treat under wraps. If the big man knew that any Santa’s Brass bottles have escaped his eye, you better believe he’d be comin’ to town to collect.
