I’ve got some great news for lovers of our local holiday ale. The guys at Lion Brewery are working on this years Holiday Warmer reserve barrel aged ale…and it’s in the barrel! This years brew starts with the aged 2008 Holiday Warmer, and will be split in two barrels. The first will be straight oak aged warmer, but the 2nd will be re-pitched with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis yeast and aged for another 6 to 8 weeks in a barrel. This should make for some interesting brews so stay tuned here for further details. And speaking of aged warmer, don;t forget that Kern Brother’s in Dallas has a VERY limited quantity of 2008 aged Holiday Warmer, just released last week by Lion.
