Like FDR’s Depression-era radio addresses, which were like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time, our Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation. Fireside Chat is our early winter seasonal brew available from October through December in six pack cans and on draft. Brewed like a classic, warming Strong Ale but with a subtle blend of hand-selected spices for just the right festive flair. ABV: 7.9%
Abita Christmas Ale (November – December) rounds out our calendar. Each year at the Abita Brewery we craft a special dark ale for the holiday season. The recipe changes each year so that Abita Christmas Ale is always the perfect gift. Its spicy character is excellent with traditional holiday foods such as gingerbread or spiced nuts. Try some blue cheese or a creamy Camembert with a Christmas Ale. ABV: 5.5
Our winter strong ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. ABV: 8.3%
A spruce-infused pale ale, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA. Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves. A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper. ABV: 8.5%
‘Tis the season for family, friends and IPAs! Why IPAs, you ask? Think of the citrusy and piney characteristics this style is known to bring to the table, and then think about those foods you’ll be bringing to the table. IPAs have a tendency to pair with an assortment of holiday favorites – everything from shrimp cocktail to chicken wings, and a little ham in-between. With five different offerings this holiday season, grab a 60 Minute, 90 Minute, Indian Brown, Burton Baton or Flesh & Blood, and raise a glass to good beer and good memories!
A reward for all that shoveling. we keep it interesting with toasted oak chips, cinnamon bark, nutmeg, and a little extra kick to help forget you have to go back out there. ABV: 6.5%
If it tastes like Christmas, it probably works with K-9. This year’s release was brewed with cardamom, vanilla and chocolate, so try it with buttery cheeses, sweet breads and hearty stews. ABV: 7.4%
Hibernation Ale has been our celebrated winter tradition since 1995. This robust, dry-hopped ale has a malty richness balanced with a complex hop profile and hearty, warming character. ABV: 8.7%
Our warming winter Ale is amber in color, malty and full bodied. Belgian yeast provides a variety of delicate characteristics in the nose and on the palate. ABV: 8.0%
This winter inspired pilsner is a classic drinkable pilsner brewed with spruce tips which add sweetness and slight resinous, citrusy nuances. ABV: 5.5%
Based on Benjamin Franklin’s original recipe, which called for barley, molasses and essence of spruce, our Tavern Spruce is as approachable and engaging as the man himself. We source blue spruce clippings from a local organic farm, Indian Orchards, steeping them in the kettle to create this one-of-a-kind deep amber ale. ABV: 5.0%
