According to a press release, Upper Hand Brewery is excited to announce the upcoming release of their newest beer, Christmastime, an Oatmeal Stout brewed just for the holiday season.

Made with oats grown in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this Oatmeal Stout is dark and roasty, with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Fans can choose to enjoy it now or cellar for just the right occasion.

“Christmastime was brewed to share in front of the fireplace with your friends and family,” commented Larry Bell, President and Founder of Bell’s Brewery, Inc. (Upper Hand Brewery is a division of Bell’s). “And with an ABV of 7.2%, it just might give you the sisu you need to get through the holidays and the U.P.’s long cold winter.”

Christmastime will be available in limited quantities in both bottle and on draft throughout Upper Hand Brewery’s distribution area beginning in early November, just in time for the holiday season.

Brewed with a 20-barrel system in Escanaba, Michigan, our beers celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of the north and our community. We may be a young brewery, but our roots run deep. Upper Hand beers are available throughout the Upper Peninsula, but you won’t find them below the Mackinac Bridge. We brew beer where it is meant to be enjoyed. We invite you to visit and enjoy not only our beer, but the wonder and beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
