From there it became a yearly seasonal release at the Taproom. In 2008, we began bottling Tripel as part of our Bottle Conditioned Belgian Ale Series of beers sold in 750ml bottles.

Schlafly Special Release Christmas Ale is currently out in the market, so I thought it would be fun to see if I couldn’t find out a bit more information about this always popular winter release for you good people. To do that, I went straight to the source and talked with the gentlemen responsible for creating the recipe for our Christmas Ale; James “Otto” Ottolini.
