A time for friends, family and beer.
There's nothing like gathering around this time of year to enjoy the things that really matter with your loved ones. That is, until Uncle Petey starts rambling on about the time he got abducted by aliens. At times like that, a good brew by your side can make all the difference. We've got you covered this holiday season with a trove of freshly bottled brews that will make anyone merry.
Outlaw Milk Stout
This national and international award-winning stout blends rolled oats with pale, roasted and caramel malts for a rich, velvet texture. In 6-packs at both breweries & select stores now.
20th Anniversary Ale
This very limited edition ale is a marriage of Double Icky IPA, Cerveza Chilibeso and Harvest Ale, handcrafted into a brew that celebrates our commitment to the art of craft beer. Available in limited 22 oz. bottles at both breweries & select stores now.
2013 Wassail Red Nose Holiday Ale
Wassailing, as a tradition from Old England, is meant to celebrate good health, wealth and good fortune in the holiday season. This spiced holiday ale is one winter warmer that you won't want to miss. Each of the 300 limited edition 22 oz. bottles are handsigned by Tom. Available at Reno and Sparks breweries only. Hurry they won't last long.
Mayan Maybe Not
Hey, remember when the world was supposed to end last year? Well, it didn't. To honor our continued existence, we offer a brew based on the much loved Mayan Maybe, but not. It's an Old Style Ale brewed with cocoa nibs, molasses, vanilla beans, habanero chiles, maize, smoke malts and honey. Available December 21st in limited 22 oz. bottles at both breweries. Look for it at select stores shortly after that.
