SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the annual Limited Release of Festive Ale in late October 2019.
Brewed only one day per year as a special holiday treat, Festive Ale is a Winter Warmer-style Ale featuring “a sleighload of Centennial and Golding hops and . . . capped with a dose of cinnamon and nutmeg.” Coming in at 8.1% ABV, the “strong cheerfully spiced” Festive Ale has “big complex flavors to keep you warm and toasted all season long.”
Festive Ale is rolling out now and will hang around throughout the 2019 Holiday Season (as long as supplies last).
