Hardywood Kentucky Christmas Morning is liquid proof that good things come to those who wait. Our original Gingerbread Stout takes an initial transformation through months of aging in Kentucky bourbon barrels, reaching new levels of maturity with layers of vanilla, coconut, and toasted oak. Before bottling, the barrel aged stout is cold filtered through heaps of freshly cracked locally roasted coffee beans, showcasing the nostalgic joys of Christmas Morning. Treat yourself, it's been a long year.

"The 10.8% brew starts out as Hardywood's legendary Gingerbread Stout before aging for months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Then, before being bottled, it's cold filtered through fresh locally roasted coffee beans. The result is an avalanche of flavors like vanilla, coconut, coffee, and spices. A worthy treat to toast the end of what has been a very long year for many."
