Breckenridge Brewery follows the Litre for Christmas Ale

Breckenridge Brewery 2011 Christmas AleWhat's big and bold and comes in a limited edition flip-top litre bottle? Breckenridge Brewery's 2011 Christmas Ale. Breckenridge Brewery is announcing some specially packaged Christmas Ale availability for this holiday season. The following press release details out how you can get your hands on this limited edition holiday release.

BreckBrew's 2011 Christmas Ale Liters now Available

Denver, CO – December 7, 2011 – Packaging Breckenridge Brewery's Christmas Ale into liter gift bottles is an annual tradition at the brewery. The time has come again, as the employees gather to hand label a limited supply of the bottles for availability starting this week at the Denver brewery's tasting room and at select liquor stores throughout Colorado. Each of the brewery's “elves” is noted on the back of the label, and proof of their personal touch can be found in the occasional, and refreshingly human, imperfection in the label placement.

In 1993, Breckenridge Brewery first introduced Christmas Ale and has been brewing the same recipe for the holiday season since. This beer is known by enthusiasts for its heartiness and rich flavors of caramel and chocolate. Unlike many holiday and winter beers, Breckenridge Brewery does not add any spice to its Christmas Ale. The spicy characteristics of this ale come from the Chinook and Mt. Hood hops. It's a strong ale at 7.4% alcohol by volume, but the alcohol is not a prominent flavor after this beer's lengthy 4-week cold conditioning.

In January, look for spring seasonal, Pandora's Bock, as well as Regal Pilsner, from the Small Batch Series, to hit the shelves.
