This Christmas product is indeed a result of Norwegian legislation. Beers above 4,75% alc./vol. has to be sold through the “Vinmonopolet” which is a government owned chain of outlets selling alcoholic beverages. 98 % of all beer is sold in grocery stores and supermarkets, and as such 98% of all beer sold is below 4,75% abv. The traditional Norwegian Christmas Beer is strong, but because people do not shop their beers in Vinmonopolet, they do not sell well. To be able to reach out to the masses with a Christmas beer, we have brewed Julesnadder to be a light but nutty and malty ale to go well with those rich, greasy Norwegian Christmas dishes. Recommended serving temperature 8°C/45°F.
Ingredients: Maris Otter-, Munich, caramel, black, amber, and chocolate malt; Chinook, Columbus, and Cascade hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.
11P 25 IBU 4,5% ABV.
