Rogue Releases Santa’s Private Reserve Belgian Strong Ale

NEWPORT, Ore. — Tired of the same milk and cookies every single year, Santa Claus dialed up his bearded brother, Rogue Brewmaster John Maier, and asked for something new. John invited Santa and his elves to Rogue’s brewery, where they crafted a brand new beer, a Belgian Strong Ale made with cherries, raspberries, Belgian Candi sugar, and Imperial Gnome yeast.

New this year, Santa’s Private Reserve tastes best by the fire.

“I love what John and I came up with,” said Santa. “The Candi sugar enhances the sweet and tart characteristics of the raspberries and cherries, and the beer takes a little bit from both sides of the list: it will put a little color on your cheeks, but finishes on the sweet side.”

Available nationally in 22 ounce bottles and on draft, the 2017 vintage of Santa’s Private Reserve is guaranteed to bring holiday cheer. Find Santa’s using the Rogue Beer Finder, and learn more at Rogue.com.
