Brett Joyce: Rogue’s Santa’s Private Reserve Ale


Santa's Private Reserve Ale

Beer: Santa’s Private Reserve Ale

Brewer: Brett Joyce

Brewery: Rogue

What is the perfect food to pair with this beer?
“Holiday Ham”

Describe this ale in five words.
“Balanced Double Hopped Red Ale”

Why should this be someone’s go to holiday beer?
“Santa deserves a beer.”

After delivering millions of presents all across the world no one needs a beer more than Santa. You can see from the label he is pumping his fist in the air, this could be because he is done delivering presents or the quality of the quaff in his glass. Either way there is no doubt in my mind that St. Nick has plenty of this American Amber Ale ready for consumption when he returns from what has to be the most brutal delivery day in the history of humanity.
