Southern Tier 2XMAS Arrives This Fall

Contrary to what BSJ was told before, Southern Tier Brewing will release 2XMAS this year. This new seasonal from Southern Tier drops a little later this fall. 2XMAS is brewed like Swedish Glögg. What’s that? Typically, a glögg is a mulled wine, served warm with spices and citrus. Obviously in this case, substitute beer for wine, and now you’re drinking like the Swedes.

Style: Herb/Spice Beer  (w/ Figs, Orange Peels, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger)
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft
Arrival: Hit shelves in October, 2012. First release.

8% ABV
