Holiday Beers and Hours Plus the Return of Gold Medal Deathtongue IPA!

Hello Nickel Beer Friends!I hope everyone is enjoying our mild December weather – it is certainly a nice change from the intense Winter of last year.  This weekend will be in the 60s up in Julian – a perfect time to come up and enjoy the back country and some great beer!Holiday BeersOur friends from Puesto – a great Mexican food chain and brewery – came up to brew Let It Snow Winter Lager with us.  This light amber beer was inspired by the Mexican Christmas beer Noche Buena.  It has a light malt flavor and a hint of brown sugar from Mexican Piloncillo Sugar.  The finish is dry and crisp, making this the perfect Winter beer for San Diego. You can find Let It Snow in the tasting room and at the Pub at Lake Cuyamaca and coming very soon to all 3 San Diego Pueto locations!We are putting on some special beers for the holidays.  Right now we have our Gold Medal winning Deathtongue Scorpion Pepper IPA on tap.  Although this beer packs a massive pepper flavor and aroma, the heat is balanced with a bit of malt from the IPA.  The fresh Chinook hops lend a nice background green pepper note as well.  Come grab this one while you can as it will only be on tap until Friday the 22nd.  Jalapeno Gold will return on Saturday the 23rd.Get ready for a Chocolate Vanilla version of our Stonewall Stout  to hit the taps on Thursday the 21st just in time for Christmas.  We will leave this keg on tap until it is gone – but don’t wait to long as it likely won’t last past New Year’s Day.You can find our current draft list on our website at: make sure to follow us on Facebook at: and on Instagram @nickelbeerco to find out some more special tappings during the holiday season. Holiday Day HoursWe will be Closed on December 25th for Christmas but open every other day during the holiday season.  Here are our holiday hours, all other days we will be open normal hours until 7 pm during the week and until 8 pm on Friday and Saturday.Saturday, Dec 23: 11 am to 8 pmSunday, Dec 24: 11 am to 4 pmMonday, Dec 25: ClosedTuesday, Dec 26: 11 am to 7 pmSunday, Dec 31: 11 am to 6 pmMonday, Jan 1: 11 am to 7 pmWe sell gift certificates good for beer, growler fills and merchandise which make great stocking stuffers.  We just got in a bunch of new brewery hats and T Shirts as well.And we are well stocked with Nickel Pickels and Beer Cheese right now in addition to some great new nut mix snacks and jerky from our friends at Mad Mikes Sausage and Snacks.That is your Nickel Beer news for now.  We hope to see you soon for a great Julian brewed beer.  Have a joyous holiday season and a very happy new year!  Cheers, Tom
