9 Christmas Song and Beer Pairings to Get You in the Holiday Spirit

 

 

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

If Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer is your favourite holiday tune, then you’ll need a brew that shines as bright as his nose. This song pairs with a delicious Amber / Red Lager.

This Christmas
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.

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.

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