Five years after it was first released on draft, Fat Head’s Brewery will be bottling Pimp My Sleigh.
The 10.5 percent ABV “Belgian-style Christmas Ale” is brewed with pilsner, pale, aromatic, melanoidin, crystal 90 and crystal 80 malts as well as vanguard and Mt. Hood hops. The beer also incorporates a “propriety blend” of yeast, oats, dark candi sugar and “secret spice.” The holiday seasonal was first released by the Middleburg Heights, Ohio-based brewery in 2010 as a draft-only option.
“Over the river and through the wood to this rich, complex Belgian-Style holiday brew. Intricate aromas and flavors of sweet dark malt, dark fruit, raisins, figs, anise and spicy phenols,” reads the beer label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB.) “This beer will sting the toes and bite the nose, but no worries, the horse knows the way.”
According to the beer label, Pimp My Sleigh will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
