A Note on This Beer
Hoppin’ Frog consistently frosts the Dark Beer competition, and they have medals up the chimney to show for it.
All that shiny glory is just icing on the sugar cookie for Tavour members — we keep bringing back this brewery’s dessert delights because you love them so much.
Like today’s Winter classics: the original Frosted Frog Christmas Ale and the Barrel-Aged Frosted Frog Christmas Ale!
Fans love the delectable notes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla frosting swimming in these gingerbread-esque sippers. And, both come wrapped up in a caramelly-soft base, with a 8.6% ABV that can hardly be detected by the most trained palate.
Now, taste them side by side, and notice the Barrel-Aged Frosted Frog’s added touch of oaky complexity. Aged in aromatic, freshly-emptied bourbon whiskey barrels, booze-dunked snickerdoodle flavors light up your glass. Flowing fig and honey notes mingle with enhanced vanilla from the barrels for a mulled Mead-like finish.
This year, holiday cheer is kind of a no-brainer. You can sing loud for all to hear (Elf reference, best movie ever), or you can conduct the ultimate Frosted Frog tasting — with the BA version, AND the original! Best of all, you don’t even have to wait ‘til December!
Hoppin’ Frog’s boozy brews have earned oodles of GABF, International Beer Fest, and World Beer Cup awards!
