Holiday Beer

Holiday Beer

Brewing strong beer for the winter holidays is a tradition that goes back more than a thousand years with the Vikings, and it eventually came to America in the early 1900s. Now, many breweries offer their version of a seasonal holiday beer. 

You may have seen these drinks labeled as Christmas beers, winter warmers, Christmas ales, winter ales, or something else. No matter what you call them, they’re ideal drinks for gathering together inside and celebrating. 

Although the types of holiday beers available these days can vary widely, the more traditional ones tend to have similar properties: They have a high alcohol content and are dark, malty, and sometimes a bit sweet. Some Christmas beers also contain warming spices such as clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, and coriander.

At Acquistapace’s Wine & Cheese, we have a wonderful assortment of holiday beers to suit any taste. Stop by and grab some six-packs for your next holiday party or keep them to yourself for cozy nights in watching Christmas movies. 

Kentucky Owl Bourbon

Kentucky Owl Bourbon

Kentucky Owl was a popular distillery that operated on the banks of the Kentucky River from 1879 until prohibition became law in 1916. One hundred years later, the great-great-grandson of the founder decided to revive the family business and blended a Kentucky bourbon worthy of the family name.

Kentucky Owl now makes several barrel-aged craft whiskeys in small batches, and it has become popular among whiskey connoisseurs. The company even won the Double Gold Medal and Gold Medal at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. 

We’re currently carrying two Kentucky Owl bottles at Acquistapace’s Wine & Cheese that would make great gifts for the whiskey lovers in your life or impressive drinks for holiday parties: The Takumi Edition and Batch 12.

The Takumi Edition is a limited-edition Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey created through a collaboration between the master blenders of Japanese distillery Nagahama and Kentucky Owl. It offers a full-bodied taste of buttery rye bread with a bit of a fruity finish. Don’t miss this unique holiday brew before it sells out!

Kentucky Owl Batch 12 is one of the latest small, artfully blended batches of the company’s Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. The lingering caramel and cream taste, notes of warm spices, and hints of citrus fruit are sure to make this whiskey your new holiday favorite, especially in a spiked eggnog.

You can find these holiday beverage picks, along with a wide variety of other drinks, at Acquistapace’s Wine & Cheese. We’ve got something unique and festive for you whether you’re looking for wine, beer, or liquor. Just remember to drink responsibly.
