Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, Michigan) recently announced that Noel de Calabaza Special Ale, the brewery’s annually released Holiday Ale, will make its way back to shelves and taps beginning in early November.
With a name that translates to “The Holiday Pumpkin”, Noel de Calabaza is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale that is “deep mahogany in appearance with flavors of malt, layered hops, figs, raisins, sugar plums, cashews, and betwixt rum laden truffles.” After aging in oak for six months, Noel de Calabaza emerges as a 9% ABV Holiday Ale that is “the perfect accompaniment for all times of good cheer.”
“From our family to yours, please enjoy this special beer. Join us in celebrating the season with wishes of peace and joy for all.”
– Ron Jeffries, Jolly Pumpkin’s Founder and Chief Squeegee Operator
Noel de Calabaza officially returns in early November and will be available in 750ml bottles and on draft during the holiday season (while supplies last). You can find this Special Ale at fine beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Jolly Pumpkin’s distribution area. Prost!
