Poinsettia, a small shrub with bright flaming red leaves, known to some as the Christmas Star. To most as the symbol that the holiday season is upon us. Here at Toolbox, it's the name of our street. The second in our annual Poinsettia Holiday Ale series, Poinsettia 2016 is inspired by a traditional holiday favorite, the fruit cake. Rich in fruits, nuts, liqueur and spice, the cake improves with age, much like this beautifully balanced and delicious holiday ale. Enjoy this holiday season or age for the ones to come. Cheers & Happy Holidays!
