Beer Blog: The Bruery’s Five Golden Rings

Every Winter since 2008, the Bruery releases a seasonal ale that showcases their own interpretation of a verse from "The Twelve Days of Christmas." In 2008, they released Partridge in a Pear Tree, in 2009 it was Two Turtle Doves, and the tradition will continue up until 2019, when Twelve Drummers Drumming will be released. This year's offering is Five Golden Rings, a Stong Belgian Golden Ale brewed with cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and pineapple juice, making for a truly unconventional winter warmer. Sweet belgian yeast and rich golden malts create the perfect canvas for this special blend of baking spices, presenting a flavor profile that is well-balanced and robust. These familiar flavors of winter are then brought to life by the addition of pineapple juice, which brightens up the beer with a subtle tang that is reminiscent of, but far more reserved than, the general funk and acidic notes that are often found in Saisons and Sour Ales. This beer was only brewed once and is now available on tap at Public House. Come enjoy a glass and get into the holiday spirit!
