As the holiday season gets into full swing, Big Storm Brewing Co. (Clearwater, Florida) has announced the debut of their limited, draft-only Reindeer Games Series of Winter Ales.
Previously, Big Storm Brewing Co. has been well represented in the Winter Ale department by Dunder & Blixem Ale, a complex and spicy Winter Ale that was awarded a silver medal at the 2014 Florida Beer Championships. Dunder & Blixem Ale is here to stay, but the brewery has decided to give the rest of Santa’s reindeer some love this year by creating the following four Winter Ale variants to comprise the aptly named Reindeer Games Series:
- Dasher & Dancer – Cocoa & Orange Zest Winter Ale
- Prancer & Vixen – Carmel Hazelnut Praline Winter Ale
- Comet & Cupid – Maple & Cinnamon Winter Ale
- Rudolph – Cranberry and Cherry Winter Ale
**Video about the Reindeer Games Series available below**
The four Reindeer Games variants were officially released on Tuesday, December 20. These limited, draft-only brews are available exclusively at Big Storm Taproom locations (Pasco – 2330 Success Dr. Odessa, Florida; & Pinellas – 12707 49th Street N, Clearwater, Florida) while supplies last. Dunder & Blixem Ale is a Forecast Series release available now in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft throughout Big Storm’s distribution area. If you happen to be in the Tampa area during the holidays, be sure to swing by a Big Storm Brewing Co. location to get in on some Reindeer Games. Prost!
