Beneath a mountain of snowy froth lies the garnet-hued elixir of celebrations to come. A glint of orange peel invigorates the senses, cascading into a full-bodied pillar of Festivus ale. Adornments of holiday spice warm the nose as delicate hints of stone fruit, raisin and caramel wrestle for center stage. Toasty malt adds complexity to the impressive mouthfeel for a comforting, prolonged finish.
Feats of strength! Airing of grievances! The infamous aluminum Festivus pole! This miraculous pint of ale is a tradition for Festivus holidays to come. It's mildly spiced, yet packed with sufficient ABV to ensure winter-time glory; if you don't successfully pin down the head of the household, a few pints of Festivus Miracle will.

Just brewed our first Festivus Ale this past weekend. It bubbled voraciously in the primary for the first 24 hours. We will be eagerly awaiting developments.
I purchased this and forgot I had it for the BIG day, I started it and kegged it within 2.5 weeks and it came out great. Primary was 5 days and it actually clogged the relief and bulged my plastic fermentor, secondaried for 12 days and kegged it on Christmas Eve for a party. Came out better than I expected. I did add all the mulling spices and 3/4 of the orange peels. I can smell the orange and spices and taste them as well. Dark, sweet, spicy and lightly orangy. This was a hit at the party, very happy with this kit.
