Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver BC has released the 2017 version of Krampus.
Krampus is a warming Belgian-style dubbel that pours a rich toffee colour and starts sweet with notes of dark chocolate, cherry, and pepper, followed by a soft, dry finish.
If you don’t know, Krampus is an Austro-Bavarian Alpine folklore character, described as “half-goat, half-demon,” who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved. Some are swatted with a bundle of birch branches, while the truly wicked are stuck in his basket and carted off to the underworld. In many Europe countries, Krampusnacht is celebrated on December 5.
Krampus is available now at the Strange Fellows tasting room and select private liquor stores across BC.
