If you're a fan of beer and bourbon, Santa has a holiday gift for you that is the best of both world. A collaboration between New Belgium Brewing and Knob Creek has created Oakspire, a bourbon barrel ale.

The limited edition beer is aged with bourbon-steeped oak spirals and char from inside the barrel. "Instead of putting beer in the barrels. We put the barrels in the beer."

You'll taste notes of toffee, vanilla and caramel, all wrapped up with a pleasantly warm finish.

Tis the season for Accumulation, a White India IPA that is New Belgium's revolt to the tradition of brewing dark beers for winter seasonal beers. "At least that’s what our rebellious brewers like to claim as they shovel in plenty of mosaic and Amarillo hop varietals and a bit of wheat for a smooth mouth feel."

Get through Winter this year as the snow accumulates in central New York, with a case...or two of New Belgium Accumulation.

Pick up Oakspire or Accumulation, both only available for a limited time, anywhere beer is sold. Or find a beer near you at NewBelgium.com.

Both will be sure to make for a Hoppy Holiday season!
