It’s Krampus Season at Strange Fellows Brewing

The Goods from Strange Fellows Brewing

Vancouver, BC | KRAMPUS has arrived just in time to take the edge of the sudden onset of wintery weather. Just as malty, spicy, and warming as ever, this Abbey Dubbel brings some warmth and cheer to the darkest and coldest time of the year!

He was covered in fur from his head to his foot,
the colour of midnight, the colour of soot. 

A bundle was squirming, slung over his back,
and he looked like a thief, sneaking off with his sack.   

His eyes were like embers, glowing fierce in the night
– I froze in the shadows to hide from his sight! 

A bundle of branches held tight in his fist,
reminded me that this was no happy tryst. 

He had cloven hooves and a serpentine tail,
my shameful behavior he was here to wassail. 

He was wickedly bad, an evil old devil.
I cringed when I saw him, his whole being so dreadful. 

The glint in his eye and the nod of his head
soon gave me to know I had plenty to dread.
