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.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft. Poured deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, hefty malt backbone with some interesting cereal notes. Struck me -- as it has many here -- as a DIPA.

574deadzone (1385) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear very gold with a thinner eggshell head of larger bubbles that laces quite nicely. Nose involves a healthy amount of pine resin, dry grapefruit, honey, floral perfume, and biscuit malt notes. Pretty sweet in flavor, but quite bitter. Medium bodied, oily, dry, with a long toasty piney bitter finish. A nice, enjoyable brew, pretty easy to drink for its size.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Heard a lot about this and seemed right to be drank on New Years Ever. Pours a light medium colored copper color with a thick white head. Nice head retention. Some lace. Nice citrus aroma in the nose. Malty backbone with a nice citrus rind. NIce level of bitterness. Ends pretty crisply and cleanly with a minimal lingering bitterness. Dangerously drinkable.

ryecatcher (1376) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden-orange with a thin white head, excellent retention and decent lacing. Nose is resinous hops with a bit of dankness and some tropical fruit notes (mainly guava). Mouth is medium bodies and typical of LBCs hop-forwardness profiles: pine, citrus, tropical fruit. Some candy notes on the middle, and a faint but lingering bitterness on the backend with some bready notes. Out-fucking-standing! Who says the holidays are over?

On tap at square burger. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, bread. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body. Great brew! Cheers!

BeerSkull (1374) - SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
(Bottle). Really nice hop aromatic fragrance with aromas of pine, raspberry and tangy tropical fruits like passion fruit, orange and citrus. Good and balanced taste of hops and malt, finished with a very prominent flavor of tangy fruit juice and hop bitterness. Nice!
