Twelfth Beer of Christmas 2017: Tröegs Blizzard Hops
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Tröegs Blizzard of Hops!
Tröegs created BLizzard of Hops to toast hop growers around the world for another successful harvest. This storm of hoppy citrus and pine notes is a bright reminder the end of the Hop Cycle is only the beginning.
This IPA is light bodied and extremely drinkable. Your glass will be empty before you even know it; disappearing like Santa Claus after he delivers the presents and slips up the chimney, leaving only a few cookie crumbs as evidence that he was even there.
Blizzard of Hops is a winter IPA, combining Centennial, Chinook, Galaxy and El Dorado hops for a refreshing, but dry, finish. The taste of sweet Pilsner and Wheat malts evenly balance the citrus hop flavor. The aroma of citrus hops is a welcome break from the spiciness of winter warmers and holiday ales.
The ABV is 6.4%.
Step back in time at the Historic Odessa's annual holiday celebration - a seasonal tradition of interpreting scenes from classic literature. This season our celebration lasts from November 14 through December 31, 2017.
This year's theme is Clement Clark Moore’s, A Visit From St. Nicholas. This delightful story published in 1822, often referred to as "Twas The Night Before Christmas", will be recreated again in the Wilson-Warner House, c. 1769.
