Kris Kringle

Available November 12 through December 24, 2014

Just in time for the holidays, November 15th marks the release of this year's McMenamins Traditional Yuletide Ale, Kris Kringle. KringleThe busy-as-elves McMenamins brewers have created another wonderful gift for your taste buds this holiday season. This year's version of Kris Kringle is a hearty and robust ale with a big and bold malt complexity as well as an intense and flavorful hop profile. This "winter warmer" highlights the rich, toasty, aromatic and chocolaty malt flavors as its very sturdy foundation. Generous amounts of four different hop varieties were added in five different additions that delivers a magnificent and massive hop assault. There's still some ginger and cinnamon added into the batch but the spices are a little more subdued than in years' past. McMenamins brewers hope you enjoy this years' version of our old Holiday favorite, Kris Kringle. It should pour concurrently with Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown. Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
