Advent Beer Calendar 2008: Day 21: Schlafly Christmas Ale

Schlafly Christmas AleToday’s pick comes from that other brewery in St. Louis, Missouri: Schlafly Christmas Ale. This is a spicy, strong (8% alcohol by volume) that gets high marks and is apparently very spicy. Their short description says:

A full-bodied amber ale to spice up the holidays. ‘Tis the season to enjoy this rich and flavorful ale made with orange peel, cloves and spicy hops.

It’s only available from November to December, so you’ll have to get it quick before it runs out.
