AKA Holiday Ale
AKA Holiday Leftover Ale
AKA Brown Sugar Substitute

This sad holiday season we didnt have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga brewed, wed short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. Its a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. Its a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over...
So this substitute beer is a Cereal Medley of Barley, Rye, Wheat, and Oats. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, and weighing in at 8% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Crille (90) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Golden color with a nice white head. The nose is loaded with grapefruits, tropical fruits, bread and floral notes. The taste is pine, caramel, malt and hops. A good example on a nice American Strong Ale.

Klar gyllenbrun frg med ett fluffigt ltt skum som ligger kvar lnge. Fruktig och fyllig arom med mycket humle och syrliga frukter. Citrusfrukter och grs, den typen p tomten, inte i pipan. Riktigt bra balanserad beska. Lagom sm syrliga bubblor i kolsyran. Syrlig t citrushllet med en bra avslutande stma. Toner av kola och den bsta humlen man kan vlja. En sjukt bra verjst ale som frtjnar en plats i ngon typ av hall of fame! Does it sucks? HELL NO!

Taste has medium tropical sweetness with grapefruit bitterness, really fruit, well balanced. Body is full, medium carbonation, oily. Awesome.
