BELMAR, NJ — Beach Haus Brewery is decked out for the holidays with a slate of seasonal brews that are sure to put any beer lover in a festive mood.

From full-bodied ales with fruity notes to an exclusive bourbon barrel-aged chocolate stout, a variety of beers crafted just for winter in its 30-barrel brew house are now ready to enjoy.

“This year, we’re ringing in the holiday season with an outstanding selection of new and returning brews, plus several limited offerings that are getting rave reviews,” said Steve Tichenor, taproom and events manager at the landmark brewery, located at the corner of Main Street and Eighth Avenue. “We love the holidays around here which is why we deck the place out. So come on in and get into the holiday spirit with us. ”

Here’s a sampling of what’s on tap:

Krampus Naughty is a new spiced ale that has brown sugar, figs, raisins, added to the boil and it is then conditioned on brown sugar, molasses, clove, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and ginger.

On the other hand, Kringle Nice is another new spiced ale that has brown sugar, figs and raisins added to the boil, but it is conditioned on tart cherry purée, cocoa powder and vanilla — giving it extra sweetness.

Also making its debut is Barrell Beer, which is a rich, chocolate stout with a grain bill comprised of marris otter, roasted barley and chocolate malt. Ecuadorean cocoa nibs were added to the boil, giving it a dark chocolate profile. The beer was then aged for a year in Barrell Craft Spirits bourbon barrels. This extremely limited brew is only available at the Beach Haus.

Inspired by the flavors of carrot cake, Flannel Amber is brewed with roasted carrots, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and lactose. It pours a deep amber color with subtle notes of roasted caramel, spice, ginger and raisins.

A fan favorite since 2010, Winter Rental brings together the smoothness of traditional Bavarian lagers with the flavor of dark roasted malts, as Mount Hood and horizon hops give the brew its balance.

Blending two of the most popular flavors, Whatchamalager is full of dark malts, and made with real peanut butter, sweet chocolate and vanilla flavors.

Beach Haus has teamed with another longtime Belmar business — Beach Music Studios’ own Danny White — for its latest collaborative brew. Tune-Up is a swash witbier that is conditioned on lots of white peach to mellow the coriander and bring out a subtle sweetness. And there's more to this partnership: With every pint purchased on tap, Beach Haus will donate $1 to benefit the Beach Music Studios annual scholarship fund, and for every four-pack, it will make a $2 donation.
