Alpha King’s festive cousin. A big American Christmas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers!
Why I selected Aplha Clause Christmas Porter:
I’ve been on tour with my band since late October and I’ve been privileged enough to play in the great state of Indiana again. I try to acquire 3 Floyds beer whenever we come through.
I highly enjoy the Alpha King and was anxious to try it’s “cousin” Alpha Klaus Christmas Porter. Very nutty and chocolaty flavor up front, slightly boozey in the middle, into a rather hoppy and dry finish. Very impressive porter.
Happy Holidays from the Road!
I travel the world, shred guitar, drink craft beer… And I write about it on 2beerguys.com! Catch my band Thy Will Be Done on tour and come drink beer with me!
Stay Brewtal Friends!
About Three Floyds Brewing Company:
Three Floyds Brewing Company LLC was founded in 1996 by brothers Nick and Simon with their father Mike Floyd. The original brewery was built by Nick and Simon in a run down warehouse located in Hammond, Indiana. The first beers brewed by the brothers were designed to be a departure from the fairly bleak craft brewing scene in the region. Nick and Simon brewed intense balanced beers that were and still remain “not normal” by conventional standards.
