Join us at the brewery for the release of our first ever Barrel Aged Christmas Ale!
We aged our 2016 Christmas Ale in various whiskey and wine barrels for a year, and then tasted all of the individual barrels to select this very special blend. The result is a beautiful roasted masterpiece with whiskey, vanilla and sumptuous wintry spice notes layered on top of a rich malty base. We change our Christmas Ale recipe every year and always keep it a closely guarded secret. There are roasted malts and other grains as well as some select spices and hops chosen specifically for this recipe.  The 2016 recipe produced a particularly delightful beer that aged quite well in the bottle, but even better in whiskey and wine barrels!

Event ticket includes:

1 bottle of Barrel Aged 2016 Christmas Ale (22 oz.)

Tastings of the Barrel Aged 2016 Christmas Ale and 2016 Christmas Ale for a side-by-side comparison of the beers, before and after the barrel!

Tastings of Anchor’s signature and newly released beers; Anchor Steam Beer, Anchor Coffee Porter, 2017 Christmas Ale. 

Light bites paired with our beers. 

Opportunity to purchase additional bottles of the Barrel Aged Christmas Ale while supplies last (22 oz., $20 retail). Packaged beer, growlers, and merchandise are also available for sale, however, the Barrel Aged Christmas Ale only comes in 22 oz. bottle format.
