Diamond Knot Brewing releases 2017 and 2018-editions of Ho Ho Ho Winter Ale.

As warmer temperatures begin to yield to the brisk and biting cold, the brewers of Diamond Knot Brewing Company has announced the release of their seasonal favorite, Ho Ho Winter Ale with the following etched on their website.

Big, hoppy, and malty, this Winter Warmer is just what you need on cold night at sea.

At 8.5% ABV and a modest 60 International Bittering Units, Ho Ho will be a welcome addition to your holiday-themed dinner table or party. What's more, the brewery have announced the release of last year's 2017 Industrial Ho Ho, wax-dipped in case you're looking for an early Christmas gift for that special someone, stranger, or friend.

Bottles are on sale at all three Diamond Knot locations, as well at all local specialty retailers including Total Wine & More.

About Diamond Knot Brewing Company

A long time ago, back in 1994, Bob Maphet and Brian Sollenberger embarked on—as Bob puts it—“a hobby that went wildly out of control.” It was an adventure to change the world and the public’s perception of how amazing beer can taste. Putting their noggins together, they crafted the finest beers known to mankind (or at least we think so).

As they continued to brew the liquid gold, the guys discovered that landlubbers of all different backgrounds craved the delicious brews and demand increased substantially. Jumping forward to today, Diamond Knot Craft Brewing produces more than 600 barrels of beer a month and that number keeps growing year after year.

In January 2017, there was a wee bit of a shift in leadership at Diamond Knot. Bob set off on a retirement adventure with his wife, Shelly, and moved into the Chairman seat as a company advisor. Co-owner Andy Eason, longtime VP of Retail Operations, stepped in as President & CEO. Co-owner Pat Ringe continues as VP of Brewing Operations, and recently took on the title of Dir. of Sales.
