"A Holiday tradition continues at Fort George Brewery with our Fifth rendition of the North Series. Originally brewed to attend the Great American Beer and Barley Wine Festival in Alaska we change this beer every year, but keep the Strong Ale base as a constant. Last year we imagined a Christmas Tree being thrown into the beer and devised a recipe that included spruce buds, cranberries and a giant candy-cane.

This year we took another Holiday Icon, The Fruitcake, and designed our Winter Seasonal in its’ honor. A mash of barley, oats, wheat, rye, rich caramel and honey malts are mildly spiced with Cascade and Saaz hops, fermented with Fort George House Yeast then allowed to condition on hand-splintered, rum inspired oak. A Glase Fruit concoction that includes cherries, pineapple, orange and lemon peel is dissolved into the finished beer to add the final touches. While designed and bottled to age, we are sure this version of the Fruitcake will not be passed down for generations, but opened and imbibed at many a cheerful gathering."

Hope to see you there!
