Available on draft and in 6-pack and 12-pack 12-ounce cans
The original fresh hop beer, first brewed 40 years ago, in 1981, is a near perfect American-style IPA. And unlike many really big holiday beers, at 6.8% alcohol it’s quite sessionable, making it a great companion for the playoff and bowl games ahead.
I especially enjoy finding it on draft, where its Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops and caramelized malts join together to create a bright balance before a welcome punch of old school bitterness in the finish. Wimps beware!
I like Celebration with pub grub such as fish and chips or bangers and mash. But it will work well with roasted turkey and dressing, and it’s a delight with creamy high-fat triple cream or English-style Cheddar cheeses.
