12 Brews of Christmas – Day 4: 21st Amendment Fireside Chat

firesidechat_can_022113-230x409For the fourth brew of Christmas my good fortune brought to me: six cans of Fireside Chat as the fourth beer in our 12 Brew of Christmas Series. 2013 is the first time I’ve gotten my hands on this Winter Warmer, and the Pacific Northwest brew has become an instant addition to my holiday tradition.

Fireside Chat is a winter seasonal from 21st Amendment Brewing out of San Francisco. At 7.9% this brew is at the low end of the typically boozy strong ale style. That makes it great for sipping all evening by the fire. By their own description 21st “improvise[s] with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation.” This brew is the perfect balance of spices, cocoa nibs and a combo of 6 malt varieties.

Grab some while you can as it’s only available from Oct-Dec. If you miss this seasonal beaut, 21st will be releasing “Sneak Attack” in January which they describe as “the perfect antidote to the big beers of winter.”
