To celebrate the holidays, your pals at Old Yale have been furiously working on some experimental recipes over the past few months. Our staff have designed and brewed their own test-batch beer with the help of our awesome brewmaster, Nick – and we’re SO excited to share these creations with our friends!!
Here’s how Beermas works:
Starting December 12, we’ll be releasing NEW brews each day (excluding Dec 19) up until Dec 24th (open at 11am). Each beer will be announced on social media daily, prior to the tasting room opening AND the beer will be available at 5pm (available at 11am on Dec 24). In order to get your hands on these unique brews, you have to purchase one of these special 2017 Beermas Snowflake Boston Round Growlers ($10ea) – we’re only selling 100 of them! If you don’t have one, you won’t be able to get a growler fill ($9/fill). If you do have one, you can get ONE fill each day (limit 1 fill per person/per day/per beer). Note: we cannot guarantee a fill to all Holiday growler holders every day. Beermas is a first come, first serve program.
Check out our social pages and this blog post each day to find out the brew before it’s available. If you don’t want a growler but still want to try each beer, you can grab it in a taster glass, on a flight OR one 12oz pour.
We sold out of growlers last year and the beers went quickly so don’t miss out! We’ve pushed the limits on these beers and your taste buds might not ever forgive you if you don’t participate. Whew… who wants a beer?
