The pFriem 2020 Holiday Pack

pFriem 2020 BBA Imperial Stout

An Imperial stout fit for a Russian czar. pFriem’s 2020 Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout benefits from a year-long snooze in Oola Distiller’s Bourbon Barrels. The result is a beer as dark and rich in color as flavor, boasting big, boozy notes of chocolate mousse, coconut, and ripe cherry. This is a beer for royalty.


pFriem 2020 Rye Whiskey BA Imperial Brown

Yes, imperial and barrel-aged stouts are seasonal favorites. But, don’t limit yourself to just these styles. In fact, there’s a whole slew of wonderful, full-bodied beers that exist outside of stoutland. That includes rich porters, smoked beers, dark Doppelbocks, and even boozy brown ales. pFriem’s Imperial Brown Ale is like a refreshing blast of Arctic air thrown into the wintry mix. Aged in rye whiskey barrels for a year, pFriem’s 2020 Rye Whiskey BA Imperial Brown effortlessly oozes fireside elegance. And the brewery describes that flavor as, “brandied cherry, toffee, and a kiss of char.”


pFriem 2019 Maple BA Smoked Porter

If you took a plate of Santa’s cookies and milk sitting next to the Christmas tree by the fireplace and melted everything down into a beer, you’d probably get something close to pFriem’s Maple Barrel Aged Smoked Porter. Combining notes of dark chocolate, pecan pie, and toffee, this beer is that decadent treat that you want to finish off your night.


pFriem 2020 Belgian Christmas Ale

pFriem brews its Belgian Christmas Ale from a Dubbel base with the addition of coriander. And the end result is a beer that comes close to mimicking a chocolate-covered orange. We like to think of this beer as similar to waking up on Christmas morning and running downstairs to open presents under the tree. Popping the cork on this bottle unwraps a wonderful holiday surprise.


pFiem 2019 Oude Kriek

Red, red, red, red. That’s the color we all see for the next couple of months as Christmas comes marching around the corner. pFriem’s 2019 Oude Kriek pours a gorgeous Santa red from the addition of Hood River cherries to pFriem’s barrel-aged lambic ale. After aging for 10 months this Kriek exudes lush fruit and decadent cherry pie.
