Kris Kringle

Available November 11 – December 25, 2016

KringleJust in time for the holidays, November 11th marks the release of this year's Traditional Yuletide Ale, Kris Kringle. The McMenamins Brewers have been as busy as elves and they've created another gift for your tastebuds this holiday season. The 2016 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 toasty, rich and chocolaty malt flavors that make up its sturdy foundation. Generous amounts of two different hop varieties were added in five different additions, which deliver a magnificent and massive hop assault. Behind those delightful festive flavors are subdued hints of ginger and cinnamon. We hope you enjoy this year's version of our holiday favorite, Kris Kringle. Happy holidays & New Year!
