Fast forward to 2004 when Red Nose Winter Ale was released for the first time as a limited brew. It hit taps just in time for the Holiday season and quickly became a favorite amongst craft beer lovers. As demand rose, the winter warmer was bottled and distributed in bottle shops and grocery stores across North Carolina. In 2014 and 2015, Red Nose became the #1 Best Selling NC Craft 6 pack in North Carolina for the months of November and December.
Red Nose is brewed with caramel malts and spiced with cinnamon, fresh ginger, and orange peel making it a balanced, malt forward but not overly spiced modern day wassail. Although, we don't suggest serving a communal bowl of Red Nose at your Holiday festivities, we have found it is best enjoyed in the company of family and friends.
So keep your guests warm and cheerful this Holiday season with the gift of Red Nose!
