PORTLAND, Maine — Gritty McDuff’s is kicking off the holiday season with the release of its seasonal Christmas Ale available now through the end of the year.
“This ESB-style beer has a full-bodied, malty taste with slightly roasted undertones,” Thomas Wilson, Gritty’s marketing director, stated in a recent news release. “Its flavor perfectly complements richer holiday foods, and it’s a natural choice for entertaining.”
Made with English pale and crystal malts and a touch of roasted barley, a blend of Clusters, Styrian Goldings, Saaz and Yakima Goldings leaf hops round out this hearty brew. The dark red-amber color ale has no additives, fruits or spices and has an ABV of 6.2 percent.
A robust ale that will be served throughout the fall on draft at Gritty’s three Maine brewpub locations (Portland, Freeport and Lewiston-Auburn), Christmas Ale also will be available on draft in select bars and restaurants throughout the region and at beer retailers throughout New England in 6- and 12-packs, 22-ounce bottles and minikegs.
Gritty McDuff’s beers are available throughout New England in a growing number of bars, restaurants, pubs, taverns, supermarkets, beer and wine shops, convenience stores, and other beer retailers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
