Product details

Beneath a mountain of snowy froth lies the garnet-hued elixir of celebrations to come. A glint of orange peel invigorates the senses, cascading into a full-bodied pillar of Festivus ale. Adornments of holiday spice warm the nose as delicate hints of stone fruit, raisin and caramel wrestle for center stage. Toasty malt adds complexity to the impressive mouthfeel for a comforting, prolonged finish.

Feats of strength! Airing of grievances! The infamous aluminum Festivus pole! This miraculous pint of ale is a tradition for Festivus holidays to come. It's mildly spiced, yet packed with sufficient ABV to ensure winter-time glory. If you don't successfully pin down the head of the household, a few pints of Festivus Miracle will.

My 3rd Festivus!

Christmas ales are my thing, but when the holidays are over and spring/ summer show up with all the wimpy beers, I can still get the ale I love, making it myself. This is a great kit that produces, by far, my favorite Northern Brewer product. But beware, you need to, as a airlock, use a bubbler, this brew has blown a lid off a fermenter, it's all worth it however.
Experimenting with a batch now introducing bourbon and oak chips. Overall 3 thumbs up.

Needed more spice

I felt like this needed more spice but everyone I shared it with said this was one of the best brews I have made. Had lower carbonation than others but I’m wondering if I aged it too long.

Festive Miracle Ale

This beer is an easy brew with plenty of flavor! Great beer for the holidays or just a good "winter" beer. You will notice the flavors of the spices and a hint of Carmel in it's taste. My friends that have tried really enjoyed it! Highly suggest this beer kit!

Great flavor. BE PATIENT! Takes at least 4 weeks to carbonate!

DEFINITELY follow the directions with this one - use only 1/2 the spice and orange. The flavor came out perfectly. It’s a very smooth red holiday ale. Very drinkable. Mine came out to about 7.5% ABV. VERY ACTIVE fermentation - had my first blow out with this beer - I used the canned starter from Northern Brewer and did not have a blow-off system. After 24 hours I walked into a blown off top and beer on the floor. I simply cleaned it up, put the top back on, and let it continue for another 7 days. BOTTLING: I bottled on December 7th hoping to get these out as gifts to my friends. Carbonation took a long time on this one - I think because of the higher ABV content. I was impatient because I wanted to give this as Christmas gifts. I tasted one after 6 days, 7 days, 10 days, 14 days, then finally 4 weeks after bottling. FINALLY after 4 weeks I got a nice fizzy head and wonderful flavor.
