About “A Snowball's Chance in Ale”
To celebrate the release of the 2012 Kris Kringle Yuletide Ale, brewer Jen Kent will present guests with a special taster tray of Kris Kringle and several other seasonal beers for $7.50.
Seasonal beers include Kris Kringle, Santa’s Flask (Kris Kringle with oak spiral soaked in whiskey), Little Drummer Hop (Romulans-tyled IPA), Parson Brown Maple Ale, Lady Kringle (Spanish coffee porter on nitro), and a special holiday surprise ale.
For the ladies! Treat yourself to notes of roast, coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg as you kick back and reward yourself for a holiday well earned.

Lil' Drummer Hop
Styled similar to the Romulan Ale, this guy will make you a happy ale drinker. Beautifully light in body, and packed with Chinook hops for a blast of bitterness that is topped off with a touch of Cascade hops. Simplicity at its best!

Parson Brown's Maple Ale
Nice medium-bodied brown with a low hop profile and the addition of maple syrup brought back from the motherland of Vermont. Take off your coat and get warm with this ale!
