To Øl 1 is a recent brewery with a lot of success and a huge following. The commercial brewing began in 2010. In 2014 Ratebeer.com 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.
