Rogue Ales & Spirits to Release 2020 Santa’s Private Reserve Peppermint Bark Milk Stout

NEWPORT, Ore. — This holiday season, Rogue Ales & Spirits and the one and only Santa Claus are releasing a Peppermint Bark Milk Stout as the 2020 edition of their much-anticipated Santa’s Private Reserve. This rich and warm stout is a confectioner’s dream and a must for any holiday celebration.

“Santa’s vision for this year’s Private Reserve came to him in the candy cane forest where he was busy harvesting peppermint bark to make one of his favorite treats,” says Rogue Brewmaster, Joel Shields. “He called us and ecstatically blurted out, “Peppermint bark milk stout!” We knew exactly what he meant and got right to work brewing up our 2020 Santa’s Private Reserve. Santa was elated with the results, and we think you will be too.”

Peppermint and dark chocolate are prominently displayed on the nose and carry through to the very last drop. The refreshing peppermint and velvety dark chocolate taste like the holidays in a glass. This beer is the full package and is certain to brighten up even the worst days of winter.

“I always look forward to my annual trip to Newport, Oregon to brew our annual Santa’s Private Reserve,” says Santa Claus. “This year’s Peppermint Bark Milk Stout is a real treat that pairs perfectly with my favorite sugar cookies.”
