To Øl 1 Ton of… Christmas Review

To Øl 1 is a recent brewery with a lot of success and a huge following. The commercial brewing began in 2010. In 2014 ranked them as the 9th best brewery in the world. They currently export to 40 countries. On to the beer…

Ton of… Christmas pours a opaque hazy blush pink, with a huge head of blush tinged foam. It has a vivid tart taste. It’s brewed as a Berliner Weisse along with cherries, redcurrant, and prunes. The fruit provides a kaleidoscope of flavors resulting in a complex, interesting beer. The tart fruit taste is a refreshing change from the syrupy malt bombs that are passed off as Christmas beers these days.

Ton of… Christmas weights in at 8.1% ABV. Look for the cute Elves on the label.

To Øl brews a number of Christmas-themed beers. And even sells a beer Advent calendar. Take a look at them here. I’d love to try the rest of their Christmas beers, especially the barrel-aged versions.

    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.
