Breckenridge Christmas Ale

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Breckenridge Christmas Ale is here…and this year there are not one, not two, but THREE ways you can enjoy this terrific bounty of the season: 6-packs, draft and now…5Liter Mini Kegs!! That’s right, ten delicious pints packed into one happy little bundle….perfect for all those holiday parties or perhaps under the tree with a big bow on top. It surely is the gift that keeps on giving!

This seasonal ale has been spreading holiday cheer to beer fans everywhere for nearly two decades. Brewed in the style of an American Strong Ale, this deep mahogany brew is full-bodied and malty with a touch of spice that will surely keep you warm this winter. Unlike many of the other Christmas beers on the market, this Colorado classic contains none of your traditional mulling spices. The use of Chinook and Mt. Hood hops provide all the spicy flavors and aromas of pine and citrus. Caramel, Chocolate and Black Malts balance out the hoppiness and create a sweet malty backbone, lending flavors of chocolate and caramel throughout. While extremely well-balanced and easy to throw down, Christmas Ale clocks in at 7.4% abv, so be sure to take time to savor and enjoy the season one sip at a time!

Then and Now…
Celebrating 22 years in the beer business this year, Breckenridge was founded by home-brewing enthusiast Richard Squire in the little ski-resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Over the last two decades, they have grown from a tiny brewpub facility to leader in the industry with an annual production of more than 41,000 barrels and distribution in over 30 states. In addition to their original brewpub in Breckenridge, they maintain four other brewpubs and ale houses in Denver and Grand Junction. If you’re planning on heading out to Colorado this winter for a little skiing, be sure to stop by one of these fabulous locations for a few beers!
