Rogue Ales has launched Santa’s Private Reserve in the UK.

The Oregon-grown ale - which comes in 650ml (rrp £4.50 - £7) and 355ml bottles (rrp £1.89 - £2.50) - is available now through specialist beer importer Euroboozer,

Roasty and malty in flavour with a well-balanced spruce finish, Santa’s Private Reserve has an abv of 5.3%.

Euroboozer founder Martyn Railton said: “Santa has done another great job for Rogue once again and I have to say this year’s reserve is an absolute beauty. We hear he was getting it in the neck from Mrs Claus about lack of space so we were more than happy to help the big man out and take stock early. Rogue epitomizes everything that is good about American beer so we have no doubts that this beer will be a big success this festive season. ”

Rogue Ales & Spirits is an agri-fermenter founded in Oregon in 1988 as one of America’s first microbreweries. Rogue has won more than 1,700 awards for taste, quality and packaging and is available in all 50 states as well as 50 countries.
