Today’s Advent beer pick comes from Puyallup in the Seattle-Tacoma area of the state of Washington, Puyallup River Brewing Company and their Imperial Christmas Cream Ale. Cream Ale is not something you normally associate with either “imperial” or Christmas, but Puyallup River has taken their standard Cream Ale and amped it up for the Yuletide season.
Light, bright, and effervescent, our Gold Medal winning Cream Ale has taken on a new flavor profile for the Holiday season! With just the right amount of spice and alcohol, our Imperial Christmas Cream Ale will be the life of the party!
No mention of what specific spices were used in this beer, though Untappd users mention nutmeg and cloves as the dominant flavors. At 8.5% ABV you’ll find a spiced Christmas cookie in a glass with this ale.
