Danish: Ingen jul uden juleøl ! Der er mange traditioner forbundet med juleøllet. Helt tilbage i tid til Harald Blåtands julegilde hvor man sloges med sværd, og hovedet fra den tabende part trillede ned i tønden med juleøl ! Den slags sker heldigvis ikke mere, men til enhver god julefrokost hører den velsmagende, stærke juleøl. Fra Peter Fabers „Sikken voldsom trængsel og alarm“ husker vi alle sætningen: „ Rør blot ikke ved min gamle jul, jul, jul, jul osv, osv“. Vi siger det samme om juleøllet - det har vi alle ret til. Hornbeers juleøl er på 7,7 %.Vi har tilsat den rigelige mængder humle for at gøre den mere velegnet til julemaden. Vi har også brugt store mængder humle for at gøre den mere velegnet til julemaden. Vi har også brugt store mængder münchenmalt for at give øllet stor fylde og tilpas sødme. Skål og god jul !
