Northern California's farm-to-barrel craft beer pioneers Almanac Beer Co. released its Holiday Advent Beer Box, which features 12 16-ounce cans of beer, spanning a wide range of innovative craft beer styles. Also available for inclusion in the Holiday Beer Box is Almanac's limited-edition release of Ugly Sweater LOVE Hazy IPA. Ugly Sweater LOVE Hazy IPA is dry-hopped with Sabro, Citra and Mosaic hops, with a 6.1% ABV.
The Almanac Holiday Advent Beer Box is packaged inside a festive Almanac-branded, non-denominational gift box. Each box is available in one of three configurations: All Fresh Beer, including a selection of IPAs, lagers and stouts; All Barrel-Aged Sours, including a range of Almanac's complex and nuanced mixed-fermentation sours; Mixed Pack, a variety of fresh and barrel-aged sour beers. Each box contains 12 16-ounce cans and perforated “doors” that allow recipients to open one door each day to reveal a surprise 16-ounce can. Almanac’s Holiday Advent Beer Boxes quickly sold-out in 2020, and these much-anticipated offerings will make the perfect gifts this holiday season for shoppers in California (beer shipments are restricted to residents in California).
Nationwide, Ugly Sweater LOVE Hazy IPA with its limited-edition label design will be available throughout California, Arizona, Florida, Indiana and Pennsylvania. Built on a simple base of pilsner malt and rolled oats, Ugly Sweater LOVE Hazy IPA has a pillowy mouthfeel featuring flavors of mango, cantaloupe and coconut, it says.
