You're going to want to get your hands on a can of Angry Eggbert before it's gone for good.

The Newburgh Brewing Company has teamed up with Devitt's Nursery to create the very first beer inspired by Eggbert, the Christmas egg. Anyone who's grown up in the Newburgh or New Windsor area is well aware of Eggbert. He's been greeting children and listening to their Christmas wishes for generations.

Now, Eggbert is being immortalized with his very own beer.  Angry Eggbert is an IPA brewed with a very special holiday ingredient that gives the beer a unique Christmas taste. We were lucky enough to be one of the very first people to try the beer and check out its unique can before the official release.

You can pick up limited edition cans of Angry Eggbert IPA starting Friday, December 1at the Newburgh Brewing Company.  Samples will also be available all season long at Devitt's Nursery and Supply in New Winsdsor.

For those who want to knock back a couple of pints with the egg himself, Newburgh Brewing Company will be hosting an "Eggbert After Dark" event on Friday, December 29 featuring an adults-only audience with Eggbert.
