Heavy Seas (Baltimore, MD) is busy today bottling 2013 Yule Tide. The beer was a Belgian-style tripel in the past before taking a year off. (I hear it has relatives in Spain.)
In a Beer Street Journal interview with Hugh Sisson earlier this year, he mentioned that Yule Tide will return in the Uncharted Waters Series this year, with the style changing annually.
This year’s edition is an imperial red ale, brewed with ginger, and aged in Jamaican rum barrels. What’s not to love about this?
Look for this final Uncharted Waters release of this year to hit shelves mid-month.
