Good evening, friends. I hope this address finds you in good company, cozy and warm. Perhaps you’re relaxing with a loved one beside a crackling fire, or visiting with family and friends while a Christmas tree sparkles in the background. Wherever you may be, you are most likely in need of the perfect beer to pair with the season and add to your holiday spirit. “Like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time,” 21st Amendment’s Fireside Chat winter spiced ale is the kind of beer that makes every holiday occasion just a little more festive.
A not-so-subtle twist on a English-style ale, Fireside Chat elevates the traditional with the addition of cocoa nibs and a unique collection of hand selected spices from 21A’s co-founder and Brewmaster Shaun O’Sullivan. The result is a Winter Warmer brewed “to share and to celebrate the warmth, aromas and flavors of the season.” Sweet malt and fruit on the nose. Alcohol present up front, but finishes smooth with a bitter spice and lingering warmth on the tongue. Simply put, I LOVE THIS BEER and nobody should have to celebrate the holiday’s without it.
