Griswald's Return

Well it's that time of the year. Weather your ready for 'em or not the holiday beer are arriving. That means your gunna have to start thinking about getting Cletus Jr. that damn Japanese Shaving Baby he's been squealing about for the past two months... Trust me, this toy is gunna kill this year.

Once you've returned from the Budget Mart having crushed your enemies -- Seen them driven before you and heard the lamentation of their women; your gunna need a nice Holiday beer greeting you when you come home.

Let me help you, Brothers & Sisters. Let me dull your holiday pain with a familiar dose of spicy holiday goodness. You may notice the label may be different but this is same Griswald Holiday Ale that RedRock has been making for the last few years. I'm going to miss the artwork of the old bottle it definitely had more character.

Pours a clear golden amber color with a nose is mostly of nutmeg and cloves and a touch of maltiness beneath. The taste started big and malty then the spices kick in. Nutmeg and Clove are very pronounced then transitions into a Cinnamon spiciness. The finish is bright and piney. At 8.5% it will warm your cockles and help you forget about putting that sleeper hold on that old woman from the toy section.

Available today at the Downtown & Fashion Place locations after 5pm. Call ahead before making the trip.
 
Speaking of the Holidays. We'll be announcing the date for the Fourth Annual Holiday Tasting in the next few days. This the only place you'll find the invite and once it's full, it's full.

One more thing. KUED will be airing a documentary tonight call Beehive Spirits. It's a 30 minute piece on the story of alcohol in Utah, it's a timeless story about character and craft that is at the heart of Utah's alcohol history. Beehive Spirits airs at 8:30pm tonight on KUED HD. Check your local satellite or cable provider for channel.

Thanks for the heads up on Spirits in the Beehive, it was pretty cool. And I can't wait for the holiday tasting. It's always a great time talking with all the other beer lovers.
