On Tap: Mad Elf


Mad Elf
Tröegs Brewing Company, Hershey, Pa.
Belgian Strong Dark Ale / 11.0% ABV

‘Tis the season to keep an eye out for one of Santa’s favorite little helpers. Tröegs Mad Elf has already started appearing on shelves, but unlike that other elf on the shelf, this little guy won’t be tattling on you.

Categorized as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, it features honey, cherries, and understated spice notes to give it a little Christmas kick. It’s a clear ruby quaff most comfortably served in a heavy chalice. And clocking in at 11.0% ABV, it won’t take much to put a little jingle in your step.

Mad Elf is available October through December. More at
