Advent Beer. Holiday Stout. Christmas Ale. Is it marketing humbug? In our Christmas parody of Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl,” the defining work of the Beat Generation, St. BeatNick embodies the Dec 24th disillusionment of his secular and shoddily-souled society. Super-immersion in this culture of crowds, conspicuous consumption, and greed has literally and symbolically “beat down” poor Santa who’s ready to crack. Until, lo, the Flying Monkeys lifts all of us from our cynicism and brings craft brewed nostalgia to even the most jaded hearts. Peace on Earth and Craft Beer for Men.
Style: St. BeatNick is dark and stout with a longing, bitter-sweet soul created from an abundance of darker chocolate malt, raw cacao nibs, and a warm touch of cocoa powder.
Taste: Our Chocolate Stout is a swarthy holiday elixir with dark roasted malts, and cocoa bean notes. Laced with bitter-sweet chocolate and an honest off-white froth, St. BeatNick finishes with slight acrid notes balancing out its sweetness.
Drinkers: For those adventurous patron desiring peace on earth and goodwill toward men.
Serve With: You can't go wrong with a fruit based or a chocolate desert. For the adventurous, try it with Mexican. The stout will act as a mole like smoky chocolate compliment to meats or chicken.
