21st Amendment Brewery Welcomes Winter with Return of Fireside Chat

21st Amendment Brewery (San Francisco, California) has officially announced that Fireside Chat will return for its Seasonal Release in mid-October 2021.

One of 21st Amendment’s most anticipated releases each year, Fireside Chat is a Winter Warmer/English-style Strong Ale featuring a select spice blend and “lush and flavorful Ghana cocoa nibs from TCHO Chocolate [to add] a deep layer of texture to . . . a beautiful malt character of eight different malts.” Coming in at 7.9% ABV, Fireside Chat is “the perfect sipper at the Thanksgiving dinner table or while nestled up fireside with loved ones during the December holidays.”

“Fireside Chat has a wonderful warming amber color, bright toffee foam head, soft spice profile, and a rich chocolate layer on the finish that’s quite elegant. We made some slight tweaks to the 2021 recipe that I think our beer fans will enjoy. I’m excited to see what they think. Also, the packaging features President Franklin D. Roosevelt (who signed the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution into law) having a jovial fireside conversation with an elf. Why not be like FDR and enjoy a Fireside Chat of your own this holiday season. I don’t think it gets much better than that.”

– Shaun O’Sullivan – Co-Founder and Brewmaster at 21st Amendment Brewery

Fireside Chat is scheduled to return in mid-October and will hang around through the holiday season. You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Florida, California and throughout the rest of 21st Amendment’s 33-state distribution territory. Prost!
