The Beer of the Month for November is Troegs Mad Elf Ale — while this beer naturally seems like in should be the Beer of the Month for December, I’ve chosen to highlight in a month in advance so that you can actually enjoy it leading up to the holidays. The beer is brewed by the Troegs Brewing company out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Thank you to a Mr. Timothy Eckert for the recommendation.
So the details: At 11% abv, this beer is strong and guaranteed to keep you warm this winter. It falls under the festive, fruity beers category (which I typically despise), but this one is pretty damn good and is in the spirit of the season (Christmas rules). The beer is dark red in color and has flavors of “cherry, honey, and chocolate malts.” That sounds about right to me. Check it out right after the spiked eggnog.
