Top Ten Christmas and Holiday Ales Brewed in the USA for 2013


Best Christmas Beers Brewed in the USA

Silent Night brewed by Mother Earth Brewing - Kinston, North Carolina
Invite friends, stoke the fire, and uncork a bottle of indulgence. Silent Night offers a coffee aroma and the taste of an exceptionally rich malty flavor. Robust yet smooth and black as coal, each sip is a delightful gift. Old man winter gave you just what you were hoping for. Silent Night is a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Our Head Brewer says, "Embellished with a hint of coffee and a touch of molasses, you’ll enjoy a bold, yet delightfully smooth brew. I pronounce this Barrel Aged Imperial Stout a sipper."
 

 
Great Lakes  Christmas Ale
The Great Lakes Brewing Company's Christmas Ale is a repeat World Beer Championship Gold Medal winner. The full-bodied, spirited beer is copper in color and has a combination of cinnamon, fresh ginger, and sweet honey tones. Christmas Ale is crafted from American two-row wheat, roasted barley, and English crystal hops, among other ingredients and is designed to complement most holiday meals.

    
Sierra Nevada Celebration
The long, cold nights of winter are a little brighter with Celebration Ale. Wonderfully robust and rich, Celebration Ale is dry-hopped for a lively, intense aroma. Brewed especially for the holidays, it is perfect for a festive gathering or for a quiet evening at home.

 

Sweetwater Festive Ale
SweetWater Festive Ale is a strong ale brewed with generous amounts of rich malt, coupled with a taint of cinnamon and mace to keep you warm and toasted all winter long. ABV- 8.5% and is available in six packs, Liter bottles, 15.5 Gallon ½ bbl kegs (US Sankey) and 5 gallon torpedo kegs. Malts include 2 Row, Munich, 40L, 70/80, Carapils, Chocolate, and Black. We use Centennial, US & UK Golding hops. We Double Dog Dare You To Try It.

Alpha Klaus Brewed by Three Floyds Brewing
Pours black with barely any light getting through. It has a fluffy khaki head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing and retention. Smells like chocolate and Pine-Sol. The aromas are full of dark chocolate and lots of citrus. Lots of lemon and pine needles in the mix. Subtle malt notes. The flavors are pretty bitter. Huge hop presence. Tons of lemon zest and hints of grapefruit rind. Lots of chocolate. Some roasted malts in the mix. There's a nice amount of pine needles and pine resin. Drinks more like a Black IPA than it does a porter. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied, but feels like it could be on the lighter side of full-bodied. Active carbonation and smooth and fluffy. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's easy and fun to drink.
 
6th Day Brown Ale brewed by Goose Island Beer Company
Every year to celebrate the holiday season, we brew up our Sixth Day, and with each year we change the recipe slightly so that you have something special to look forward to. This brown ale has 8.3 ABV and IBUs: 55. Hops include Pilgrim, English Golding and Celeia. And malts include Special Pale, 2-Row and Bonlander Munich.

Tröegs Mad Elf Ale
The Mad Elf is a cheerful creation to warm your heart and enlighten your tongue. The combination of cherries, honey, and chocolate malts delivers gentle fruits and subtle spices. Fermented and aged with a unique yeast, this ruby red beer has significant warming strength that underlies the pleasant character of this intriguing yet delicious Ale. The Mad Elf is a jolly and delicious beer for the holidays. Eighty years after Prohibition Repeal, states across the country have greatly modernized their alcohol markets but some Prohibition legacies linger, according to the Distilled Spirits Council.


Santa's Private Reserve
Rogue's annual holiday offering, Santa's Private Reserve, is a variation of the classic Saint Rogue Red, but with double the hops--including Chinook, and Centennial, and a mystery hop called Rudolph by head brewer John "more hops" Maier!This holiday elixir is brewed with two-row Harrington, Klages and Munich malts, along with Hugh Baird 30-37, Carastan 13-17, and Crystal 70-80 malts, plus free range coastal water and John's proprietary top-fermenting Pacman yeast.

Fireside Chat Winter Spiced Ale Brewed by 21st Amendment
The 21st Amendment Brewery today announced the re-release of their holiday seasonal beer in a can, Fireside Chat Winter Spiced Ale. Fireside Chat hearkens back to the Golden Age of radio when the Great Depression held the country in a pincer grip, and people longed for better times. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's fireside chats, which often began with the words, "Good evening, friends," were hugely popular and his message was one of reassurance and hope.
    

Anderson Valley Winter Solstice
From the first sip of Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale , your senses will be aroused with the vision of a glowing fire, warming the hearth and home, as gently drifting snow flakes silently blanket the trees outside. Each lingering sip will gently warm your soul with thoughts of family and friends, gathering around the table for the feast. Luscious, creamy, smooth, and warming, this medium bodied ale is brewed with Caramel and crystal malts to give it just a hint of sweetness, then paired with our private blend of holiday spice. Winter Solstice Ale is great alone or as an accompaniment to any meal, and it has been known to liven and spice up nearly any social event.
