Pair with a Doppelbock
“This Christmas” is a classic, taking the holidays by storm in the 80s. This is why a classic doppelbock is the best pairing for “This Christmas” (Terrible pun, intended.)

All I Want for Christmas is You
Pair with a Porter / Stout
Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” tops the Billboard charts every year around the holidays, so its no surprise this would be your favourite holiday tune. Pair this tune with a nice holiday stout or porter.

Pair with a Winter Warmer
Winter Wonderland is a great holiday tune. Whether you’re dreaming by the fire or you’re “walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland”, you’ll need a winter warmer.

Mary’s Boy Child
Pair with a Barleywine
Boney M’s “Mary’s Boy Child” is a Christmas classic and a song you probably heard playing on repeat at your Grandmother’s house during the holidays. This song aged pretty well, so which is why we think it pairs perfectly with a barrel-aged barleywine.

Pair with an Amber / Red Ale
If all you’re asking Santa for this year is a brew, well, make sure it’s an Amber / Red Ale!
