Release of Brown's Brewing Company's Dunder & Blixem Strong Ale and reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas on December 5
No holiday season in Troy, NY would be complete without Brown’s Brewing Company's release of Dunder & Blixem Strong Ale on Sunday, December 5 at Brown's Troy Taproom! This much anticipated annual beer is brewed in honor of Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Visit From St. Nicholas” which was first published in the Troy, NY Sentinel on December 23, 1823. More popularly known as “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” the tale originally featured reindeer “Dunder” and “Blixem” (Dutch for Thunder and Lightning) before later tellings of the fable spoke of Donner and Blitzen. Don't miss this delicious 7.5% ABV holiday spiced english strong ale on draft. Bring growlers as it's the perfect beer to enjoy on chilly winter nights or to bring to holiday parties.
Also, as is tradition, longtime Brown's fan Keith Slupski will read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas around 5 pm. Music by Diva & the Dirty Boys begins at 3 pm.
