A Note on This Beer
The holidays come and go, but no need to cease all merriment while months of winter remain. Especially if you save a boozy bottle of Santa’s Brass Barrel-Aged Barleywine!
This is THE BEER that ‘sleighed’ all the other Barrel-Aged Strong Beer entries at the Great American Beer Festival in 2018. Though, since it usually doesn’t stray beyond California and Oregon, just holding a bottle is worth celebrating more than the gold medal it’s adorned with.
This year’s vintage is an extra-special find too — the brewers aged Santa’s Brass 2020 in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels!
With a massive 14.5% ABV swimming in delectable notes of dried fig, sweet cherry, and oaky vanilla, this brew warms on even the chilliest evenings. And, the longer you let it sit before opening, the mellower and more caramelly its depths become.
No matter when you plan to pop it open, Santa’s Brass is worth snatching up quickly. Drake’s is a California staple since 1989 because they’re constantly innovating and changing up recipes. Every vintage of this annual favorite goes fast, and no two are exactly the same!
