(Lakewood, NY) – Southern Tier Brewing Co. updated its website with some new features earlier this year and a page for one of its new beers, 2XMAS Ale.
Swedish flags are a fairly common sight in our part of the country. Holiday parties often have warm concoctions of spices and booze at the ready to knock the ice off of toes while raising spirits. We were inspired by a “Glögg” party, deciding on the spot to brew a beer that pays tribute to this Nordic tradition. 2xMas Ale combines traditional brewing ingredients with figs, orange peels, cardamom, cinnamon, clove and ginger root. It’s a holiday addition to the 2X line and another reason to toast to the season, but unlike Glögg, we recommend serving this one chilled.
STYLE: Double Spiced Ale
FERMENTATION: Ale yeast, two varieties of hops, four varieties of malts. Figs, orange peels, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger.
FORMAT: Available in 6pks, 1/2 bbl kegs and 1/6 bbl kegs.
