Tis the Season, BAs! With less than two weeks left, it’s time to start getting ready for the most wonderful online tasting of the year: Holiday Beers! The 2023 tasting goes from December 15 - 17. Any and all Christmas, Hanukkah and other festive winter beers are welcome. For those who’d like a recommendation of what to imbibe, once again this year we have a totally-optional “drink ‘em if you’ve got ‘em” suggestion for each day of the tasting: Friday, 12/15: Sam Adams Old Fezziwig — a U.S. Winter Warmer a lot of you old heads used to look forward to, and something the younger crowd may have missed; now back in six packs! Saturday, 12/16: Delirium Noël — a Belgian Dark Strong Ale with a pink elephant on the label; what could go wrong? Sunday, 12/17: Hofbräu Winter Spezial — a German Doppelbock some find easy-drinking despite being the strongest of all HB beers. Three countries. Three styles. Three winter classics. What better way to jumpstart the holidays? Reviewing the same beers on the same day with others is a chance for BAs to compare notes and toast the season together — but the choice is yours. Prefer to drink a completely different holiday brew those days? Or one of the three suggested beers on a different day? Go for it! Anchor Our Special Ale? Doggie Claws? Chanukah in Kentucky? Avec les Bon Voeux? Sleigh’r? Hardywood Gingerbread Stout? Fistmas? Shiner Holiday Cheer? Deschutes Jubelale? Victory Merry Monkey? Troegs Mad Elf? Scaldis Noel? We want to hear what you think about them and hundreds of others! Trees? Menorah? Cookie pairings? Pets? Ugly sweaters? We want to see decked out drinking halls in the background of your beer pics, too! Tell us what you’re considering here and/or post pictures of your hauls to help get us all the holiday spirit.
