The Beer With No Name is still their holiday ale, a Belgian style Dubbel brewed with a rare Belgian yeast strain, caramelized beet sugar and festive holiday spices. Expect hints of dark fruit, sweet cinnamon-apple and a warming finish. So, why do they call this “The Beer With No Name”? And yes it used to be “Belle Starr“. More information on that coming soon….
