Fireside Chat is a “Winter Spiced Ale” and is the first canned holiday beer 21st Amendment has released (new this year). The can features an image of President Franklin Roosevelt enjoying a beer by the fireplace, and (not pictured here) is apparently laughing and chatting with an elf!
Like FDR’s Depression-era radio addresses, which were like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time, our Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation.
Fireside Chat is our early winter seasonal brew available from October through December in six pack cans and on draft. Brewed like a classic, warming Strong Ale but with a subtle blend of hand-selected spices for just the right festive flair.
Roosevelt ran for president on a platform that included repeal of Prohibition, which makes this a doubly appropriate Repeal Day beer! Fireside Chat is 7.9% alcohol by volume and in addition to spices (they don’t specify which), there are also cocoa nibs in the brew.
