Today’s pick comes from Sebago Brewing in Maine, which was established in 1998 as a brewpub and has since expanded into four brewpubs and a production brewery. They boast a lineup of about 12 regular and seasonal beers, plus a variety of single batch and specialties.
Maine is known for its long, cold winters, so appropriately, Sebago’s winter ale is named Slick Nick Long Winter Ale—and I like to think the “Nick” in the name refers to good old St. Nick.
Slick Nick Long Winter Ale is a classic Sebago seasonal – warming up Maine Winters since 1998. Best enjoyed when nature’s at its worst, Slick Nick Long Winter Ale’s smooth body offers malty warmth and a touch of hop character. Another reason to be thankful for the season.
At 7.2% abv this should definitely earn its designation as a Winter Warmer that you can enjoy at Christmastime (ol’ Slick St. Nick!) and throughout that long Maine winter.
