Alameda Papa Noel's Moonlight Reserve Bottle Release

Alameda BrewhousePapa Noel’s Moonlight Reserve is the aged, extra-strength version of our Papa Noel’s olde ale. It has been aged for a full year before bottling, to allow the flavors to mature and mingle.  Our big, malty winter warmer comes in at 8.5% ABV, and is matured on whiskey-soaked French white oak spirals.  750 ml bottles will be available here for $10 each.  Each bottle is signed by head brewer Carston Haney, and wax dipped.  The first 96 bottles are numbered.

If you would like to reserve a case of Papa Noel’s Moonlight reserve ($120), email Matt Schumaker at

To get the party started, we will have $3 pints all day at the brewhouse!  This includes the 2010 Papa Noel’s Moonlight Reserve that we brewed this year (it has been matured on whiskey and oak, but not aged 1 year).

We will also be releasing a spectacular Imperial Stout, the Siberian Bear. This thick, roasty, and rich stout weighs in at 8.5%, and is sure to make your tongue dance and your toes tingle.  Just watch out for its claws!
