12 Brews of Christmas – Day 7: Southern Tier 2XMAS

beer_190378As we move into the second half of our 12 Brews of Christmas series, we have a tasty beer for you to sip on as you rock around the Christmas tree: Southern Tier’s 2XMAS.

This spiced ale is brewed in the tradition of a Nordic Glogg, or a mulled wine, and like a traditional Glogg, this beer packs a lot of flavor. Coming it at a respectable 8.0% ABV, it is brewed with 2 varieties of hops, 4 varieties of malt, and a gigantic tea-bag full of figs, orange peels, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and a partridge in a pear tree. (Note: no partridges were harmed in the making of this beer.) See the video below to glean some insight into how this tasty rollercoaster of flavor comes together!

2XMAS is available starting in late fall through the holiday season to keep spirits (and blood alcohol levels) high. It can be found on draft and in 6 packs in areas where other Southern Tier goodies are distributed. Give this clever and kooky concoction a try while it lasts!
