Reuben’s Brews Reuben Claus Review

A favorite brewery is Reuben’s Brews in Seattle’s Ballard area. They produce 175+ beers each year. Loads of creativity within Reuben’s. Reuben Claus is a festive Porter.

Reuben Claus is based on Reuben’s Roasty Porter, made with 7 malts. The base normally has chocolate and coffee notes. Reuben Claus is infused with peppermint (think candy canes but without the sweetness) and cocoa nibs. I pick up a hint of peppermint on the nose and the finish. The cocoa nibs blend well with the roasty malts. If you like flavorful Porters, you’ll enjoy Reuben Claus. Reuben Claus is a reasonable 5.9% ABV and tastes much bigger.

    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.
