Full Sail Wreck the Halls Review

Full Sail Brewing Co. of Hood River, Oregon is a craft beer pioneer. They make two Christmas beers, Wassail and it’s hoppy brother, Wreck the Halls.

Wreck the Halls pours reddish-orange with a bubbly head that disappears quickly. There is citrus and sweet malts on the nose. The taste is big hops: bitter pine and citrus notes. This is an IPA with more caramel malts than usual. It’s 68 IBU and 6.5% ABV. It’s smooth with a medium-long hop bitter finish that is softened a bit with the malts. It’s medium bodied and dry.

If you love hops you’ll like Wreck the Halls. The addition of caramel malts gives this beer body and depth, bringing it into the Christmas beer category. The best part is that Full Sail is widely distributed, so you can actually get your hands on a bottle!

    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.
