Jolly Ol’ St. Nick’s Favorite Brews
Bringing gifts and Christmas cheer to boys and girls around the world is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. So how does St.Nick stay so jolly? While some families leave milk and cookies other leave craft beer and cookies. What brew should you be leaving for Santa this year?

Flying around the world in the cold is not an easy task, so here are 10 of Santa’s favorite winter brews to keep him (and you) warm, this holiday season:
- Something Brewing Dark Side Schwarzbier
- Great Lakes Brewing Christmas Ale
- Deschutes Brewery Jubelale
- Stanley Park Brewing Ice Breaker
- Whistler Brewing Valley Trail Chestnut Ale
- Big Rock Winter Spice Ale
- Wild Rose Cherry Porter
- Bench Creek Brewery Black Spruce
- Grizzly Paw Alpenglow Winter Ale
- Boulevard Brewing Nutcracker Ale
Quick side note some of you might be thinking, but that’s drinking and driving. Well just to clarify, it is not because the reindeers are actually driving, so it’s okay if Santa has a brew or two or three. This holiday season if you drink, please don’t drive. Call a cab, an uber, keys please or any other driving service. Let’s all have a safe and happy holiday season.
