Once Austria’s strongest beer, Samichlaus (or Santa Claus Beer) has made quite a name for itself. Oh alright, it’s 14% if you must know. But it’s not just the chestnut-warming ABV that has marked this beer as special. Because Samichlaus is traditionally brewed on just one day of the year – the 6th December. No, we have no idea why. But as you can imagine, this makes it a somewhat sought-after beverage.
Brewed on just one day of the year
Allowed to age for ten months, the resulting frothy stuff is usually bottled in respectable 33cl measures. However, never one to do things by halves, we’ve found Samichlaus 3 Litre Christmas Beer. Enjoy this magnificent jeroboam of golden beer with hardy robust dishes and desserts. Oh yes and friends. Lots and lots of friends.
This extremely limited edition tipple makes an incredible gift to the beer lover in your life. And if they don’t believe in Santa Claus? Just a few glugs of this lovely frothy stuff and they will. Hiccupy Christmas!
