McMenamins Kris KringleBrewDad – I had the pleasure in tasting this beer the other day with my family as we ate some special burgers we made.  This is one tasty Yuletide beer.  One to add to our tasting rotation.  Love the favors and the finish it is sure to warm your up.

From McMenamins – Just in time for the holidays, the busy-as-elves McMenamins brewers have created another wonderful gift for your taste buds this holiday season. The 2014 version of Kris Kringle is a hearty and robust ale with a big and bold malt complexity as well as an intense and flavorful hop profile. This “winter warmer” highlights the rich, toasty, aromatic and chocolaty malt flavors as its very sturdy foundation. Generous amounts of five different hop varieties were added in five different additions, which delivers a magnificent and massive hop assault. McMenamins brewers hope you enjoy this years’ version of our old Holiday favorite, Kris Kringle. Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
