Ridgeway Brewing Bad Elf Review

Bad Elf is a strong English ale made with single row Cascade hops grown in the UK. Ridgeway Brewing of Oxfordshire, England makes Bad Elf in 4.5% and 6% ABV, the bottle I am reviewing is a 6%.

This beer pours clear, copper with a foamy white head that quickly reduces to nothing. The Cascade hops are evident in the taste and the bitter finish. I don’t pick up any detectible spices. It’s a good English ale, with more hops and alcohol than usual for British beer.

The elf on the label is a former elf who worked with us at the North Pole. He got into some trouble and we needed to dismiss him. I’m heartened to see that he’s put his penchence for naughtiness to a positive use.

    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.
