    ‘Tis the season for Christmas Ale!

    Christmas Ale is a robust E.S.B. (Extra Special Bitter) full of holiday cheer. It scored 97 by Beer Advocate! It has a lovely, dark red/amber color. The ale has a chocolaty character followed by an earthy hop flavor with a fruity middle-to-end with hints of melon and pear. We brew our Christmas Ale to an original gravity of 1064 (about 6.2% alcohol by volume) which gives it a light warming feature. We use only the finest English Pale and Crystal Malts and a touch of roasted barley. Willamette, Styrian Goldings, Saaz and Yakima Goldings leaf hops round out this hearty brew. Gritty’s Christmas Ale has no additives, fruits or spices.
