Just when you thought the joyous holiday of Chanukah couldn’t get any better, suddenly appears Hanukkah, Chanukah, Pass the Beer. Released by the Shmaltz Brewing Company this is the perfect brewski to compliment eight crazy nights of candle lighting, dreidel spinning, doughnut and latke munching.
An appropriate combination of eight malts and eight hops, the aroma and flavor is a robust holiday warmer. A toasted nuttiness with a suggestion of sweet chocolate, the hearty beverage boasts blends of old school European Noble and classic Beneful American hops. The result is an eight percent dark charmer that pours a luminous chestnut to ruby red with a light creamy head.
Established in 5757 (1996) Shmaltz or He’Brew, The Chosen Beer has produced unique offerings that celebrate a traditional heritage of five thousand years of beer brewing with zest. (Who was is that said the pyramids were built on beer on onions?) Besides Hanukkah, Chanukah, Pass the Beer other ales include Jewbelation 18, “a black session barley wine”, Hop Manna IPA, and their Origin Pomegranate an “Imperial Amber Ale” brewed from pomegranate juice and the winner of the silver medal at the World Beer Championships.
Hanukkah or Chanukah? No matter how you spell it this holiday means the same thing: friends and family, festive ceremony and tradition, great food and now a spectacular beer.
