Hopworks Urban Brewery To Release Noggin Floggin and Kentucky Christmas

Two popular beers from Hopworks Urban Brewery make their return this week with the first of its 2018 Holiday Beer Series. On Wednesday, November 14th from 5:00-10:00pm HUB will release Noggin Floggin and Kentucky Christmas.

Beginning at 5:00pm, HUB will tap both Noggin Floggin and Kentucky Christmas at all three of its pubs in the Portland metro area. There will also be a limited amount of bottles available at each pub.

Here are descriptions on each of the two beer releasese provided by HUB.

Noggin Floggin
A winter warmer with huge resinous hops and a balanced bitterness. Complex toffee, caramel and toasted malt flavors swirl together to make this a beautiful sipper of a beer. This beer is perfect for cellaring.

Kentucky Christmas
This beer starts as Abominable Winter Ale before it is laid to rest for months in a variety of bourbon barrels where it sits up to one year. Big oaky noes up front followed by vanilla and caramel; the aroma translates directly to the flavor, which is more complex by a combination of spicy, citrusy, and earthy hops. This is a great beer for cellaring.

Future 2018 Holiday Beer releases will take place each Wednesday in December leading up to Christmas. Here’s a preview.

  • Wednesday, December 5th:Barrel-Aged Motherland & Straight Up Cashmere
  • Wednesday, December 12th:Barrel-Aged Morning Vibes
