Flossmoor Station Santa’s Got A Brand New Bag


Brewed by Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery
Flossmoor, Illinois USA
Style: Belgian Strong Ale | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8%
Santa’s bag will have new goodies inside if he ever gets a taste of one of these! Not your typical holiday ale, we have left out the usual suspects (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc...) in favor of some lighter spices which will allow the yeast flavors to come through more cleanly. To get a light citrus flavor to our beer, we have mashed with orange and lemon peel along with a subtle amount of coriander. During the boil we added fresh ginger to accentuate the spicy phenols produced by the yeast. A nice red hue, this one is sure to warm the belly.

Note: This is the same beer as Day 11 (Belgian Holiday Spice Ale) of the 12 Beers of Christmas.
