We liked the idea of dedicating our winter ale to a demon, Krampus. Krampus refers to a legend of the Ladin countries. During the night of 5th December, the Krampus wander among the streets of the Alpine villages. Covered with sheepskins, horns and goat paws, they wave their black chains and terrorize people. It is the prelude to the arrival of Bishop San Nicola (an ancient precursor of Santa Claus) who will bring peace and gifts to the community.
This beer remembers the Christmas sweets. The taste of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg remind the cozy winter evenings in company of friends and family.
