We've been busy little elves brewing up our Holiday Ales and Winter Seasonal.  This year we introduce the "Ghost in the Graveyard"; a dark roasted ale with German malts, a touch of wheat and orange blossom honey.  This beer also gets spiced with a special blend of nutmeg, cardamon, clove, cinnamon sticks, orange peels and some other trade secret spices.  As if that wasn't enough, once fermentation is underway we pump in fresh blueberries.  This beer is a lot of fun to make and is the perfect holiday ale.

AND YES...Laydown Stay Down is coming out too!  But this year we are stepping it up a notch and putting this fine beer into bottles for sale individually, in 6-packs and in variety cases.  This local favorite is our Winter seasonal Belgium Strong Ale brewed with sweet malts, candi sugar and spicy/earthy hops making it one of our highest ABV beers.  Don't Laydown unless you want to Stay Down!  Both beers should be out by the end of the week.  Here's some cool pictures of us brewing your Holiday Ales.
