Product details

This strong-ish American amber ale is built for the cold: a substantial gravity for snowy weather, but a fast turnaround so you can get some holiday cheer from fermentor to pint ASAP. Malty but not too sweet, just enough bitterness to balance, a definite but not overstated citrus hop profile (bolstered by real citrus!), this is a far cry from most traditional, predictable holiday ales.

Loaded with premium ingredients, this recipe kit yields a saturated copper-red ale with a mind-bendingly complex flavor profile, thanks to a blend of malts. The pale chocolate adds a warm, toasty dimension and suggestions of black tea, while fig-and-toffee elements come from two authentic English caramel malts. The earthy and dark dried-fruit character of the malt segues into bright floral citrus, coming from the resinous lime-and-flowers punch of Styrian Celeia and a charge of sweet orange peel at the end of the boil!

Great winter warmer!

I’ve been making lots of IPAs lately but decided to try something more seasonal. The Brickwarmer Holiday Red turned out a truly delicious brew; one of my best ever! I would highly recommend it.

A very tasty winter beer

I haven't brewed this kit yet but bought it because I did a couple of years ago and loved it. Even my wife who isn't thrilled with a lot of the beer I make liked it. The 5 gallon corny keg didn't last long. This time I am trying the Lutra Kviek yeast.

Great taste and a people pleaser.

This beer brewed as any other brew, it has a hint of orange tang and taste great.

Too soon!

Brewed up seemingly fine, won’t be ready to sample for another week. These email requests always come before the product is finished!
