Advent Beer Calendar 2015: Day 15: Lakefront Holiday Spice Lager Beer

We are only ten days away from Christmas! For today’s Beer Advent pick we travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home of Lakefront Brewery, established in 1987. Every year they brew up a strong (9.6% abv) lager, their Holiday Spice Lager Beer.

Our version of a winter warmer: brewed with cinnamon, orange zest, clove and generous amounts of honey. Pours a deep amber to ruby color with an off-white head. Aromas are fruity and spicy, with a slight floral undertone from the lager yeast. The flavor is smooth, full and spicy, balanced by the bite of Mt. Hood hops and a substantial, warming alcohol character. This is a full bodied beer, making it a holiday taste sensation that will warm your bones on a cold winter night.

Great with holiday meals; really cuts through the richness of fatty meats like goose and beef roast. Also a nice treat on its own…try sipping our Holiday Spice Lager by the fire on a cold Wisconsin evening and create joyful holiday memories that you’ll hold on to.

Reading the spices used just sounds like this is Christmas in a bottle, and this would be the perfect beer to include in your Christmas goody box along with presents, candies, oranges, and nuts!
