We will be open right through until xmas & as such I thought we’d feature a different beer every day with festive inclinations.
12 BEERS OF XMAS
Day 2: Eggenberg (AUT) Samichlaus
Claims to be one of the strongest lager beers in the world, however given the recent exploits of Brewdog etc this one is a comparative lightweight, coming in at only 14% abv! Brewed once a year on December 6th, being the day of Saint Nicholas, this is styled as a german doppelbock. Super rich malt presence, bringing big honey & caramel sweetness, as well as plenty of stewed fruit notes. Has been described as the cognac of beers & really they aren't far wrong. A great Christmas day treat that would compliment even the richest desserts.
