A Real Nice Surprise
BREWER'S NOTES

A Real Nice Surprise draws inspiration from two holiday classics – eggnog and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  When our brewers sat under the train tracks sipping on the infamous, and high-octane, Tom & Jerry the team knew the flavors of eggnog, rum and bourbon needed to find a home in a holiday beer. A Real Nice Surprise starts life as a rich porter brewed with chocolate malts that is then aged in a combination of rum, bourbon, and brandy barrels for two months resulting in a smooth, creamy beer that you will love.  So curl up next to a fire, have a sip, and enjoy the holiday spirit because this beer is a surprise…A Real Nice Surprise.
