And now his slumber has ended…
The annual commencement of the Holiday Season marks the yearly return of The Virginia Beer Company’s award-winning Evil Santa Holiday Milk Stout.
“With hearty additions of Flaked Oats and Milk Sugar – and dashes of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Allspice – our warming 7.0% abv Holiday Milk Stout is oh so smooth with a hint of spice and everything nice on the finish,” notes Virginia Beer Co. Director of Sales Michael Rhodes.
Evil Santa has become a winter staple for this Williamsburg, Virginia-based brewery. First released in the brewery’s opening year (2016), this Holiday Milk Stout is now distributed throughout Virginia — as well as in New York and overseas in Japan, France, and the Netherlands.
“This year’s editions of Evil Santa feature some sharp new wrapping [ie, labels]…and to celebrate the return of ‘Evil Santa SZN’, we’ll be releasing limited variants throughout this festive time of year too,” comments VBC Co-Founder Robby Willey. “Unveiling Evil Santa variants each year has become something of a holiday tradition around here, and we’re excited to bring some new versions not just to the taps here at VBC but out into the wild too.”
