Chanukah, Hanukkah Pass The Beer

Just in case you were wondering “Hmmmm what goes perfectly with all these delicious fried foods?” A nice ale that cuts through all that oil and grease.

To honor the holiday that is 8 days long, this beer has 8 types of hops, 8 types of malts and an 8% ABV with some cocoa nibs thrown in for good measure.

So put on your yarmulka, here comes Chanukah, Hanukkah Pass the Beer!
