NEWPORT, Ore. — Santa’s Private Reserve, the annual collaboration between Rogue Ales & Spirits and Santa Claus hits shelves this month. The beer is always packed with enough cheer to supply any holiday party and this year the 2018 vintage of Santa’s Private Reserve is a Belgian dark ale packed with tangerines and boysenberries.
“This year we wanted to be bold and different,” says Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. “So I brewed old St. Nick a Belgian-style beer with a Rogue twist and put his jolly face on the bottle.”
“It’s the perfect beer to drink while double-checking a certain list,” says Claus.
Belgian dark ale | 7.9% ABV | 22 IBU | #SantasReserve
Santa’s Private Reserve is best when enjoyed with friends, family, and reindeer. The combination of spicy Belgian yeast and roasty malts with the tartness from boysenberries and tangerines captures the flavors of the season.
Santa’s Private Reserve is available now through the new year in 22-ounce bottles and on draft.
