10 Barrel Brewing Pray for Snow Review

In Bend, Oregon they love snow and beer. Pray for Snow is a winter ale by 10 Barrel Brewing company. At 7% ABV, this American strong ale is made for to warm you up after a day on the slopes.

Pours deep mahogany with a tight amber head of foam. It has a lot of hops (75 IBUs) with seven different malts to balance it for a big balanced – if hoppy – flavor. Caramel malts, floral hops, spices but nothing that stands out. A slightly bitter finish. The mouth feel is smooth.

All is just fine in this Christmas beer with the coloring, nose, and taste, but the finish stops suddenly. I hoped for more complexity and longer finish. Still, the elves love those malts.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
