13 Super Limited Holiday Beers at HUB



Throughout the month of December Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) is set to release 13 highly limited beers at their pubs. Each beer was made exclusively for the holiday season. Beers range from big and boozy barleywines aged for years in bourbon barrels to Imperial dessert beers based on popular holiday cakes and treats. Some beers in the lineup are so rare that the HUB pubs will have only tap a single keg at each location. Additionally, Kentucky Christmas, Noggin Floggin and Sugar Plum Fairies will all see limited bottle releases.

The fun begins on December 01 and releases continue weekly leading up to the holidays. Head to any of HUB’s pubs for the release of the beers. A full beer list and calendar is listed below:
