Advent Beer Calendar 2010: Day 4: Jewbelation 14

Image copyright 2010 Brewed for Thought

Today’s pick comes from Brewed for Thought‘s and the Hop PressMario Rubio, and he’s selected a beer that’s perfect for Hanukkah.

Mario lends a hand again this year with the Advent Beer Calendar, and his excellent selection for today is Schmaltz Brewing’s Jewbelation 14:

This year’s beer was brewed with an ale yeast, but future batches may need the help of champagne yeast. As it is, at 14%, Jewbelation 14 is the strongest beer to ever be brewed in the Bay Area and gain a wide release.

Full of flavors, Jewbelation 14 is a winter treat. Dangerous in that the flavors overwhelm the alcohol, this 14% beer is a sipper but can entice you into drinking a bit too much or too quickly. Whether you’re lighting the Hanukkah Menorah or just looking for a delicious brew for the evening, Jewbelation is a great choice.

Check out Mario’s full review and slideshow; and then go find a bottle of this beer—you won’t be sorry.
