    I pulled a bunch from the cellar but the two "traditions" I have are:
    Homebrew "westy"clone Quad xmas eve
    Fantome Noel Christmas Day - then my homebrew saison in the fermentor gets to enjoy the dregs of this bottle when I am done :wink:

    Fantome is my favorite "brewery" in the world, so its a nice little gift to myself :slight_smile:

    My mom is coming out this year and she wanted to try different hefeweizens so I have a bunch of locals. Also I still have a bottle of Clown Shoes Gengis Pecan I didn't get to drink at Thanksgiving.

    I don't enjoy family time so I will probably be sticking mostly to bourbon.

    It's odd generally I never drink anything on Christmas, granted last year I got about a 102 fever on Christmas Eve so that was a bit of a buzzkill.

    My family drinks wine and Blue Moon so I'll be drinking my beer alone.

    Here is my lineup, which will probably only be shared with my brother. Noel de Calabaza is 2012 and the delirium in 2009. Everyone else will probably have wine.

    The wildcard is the Delirium Noel. It is 2009 vintage. My friend re-gifted it back to me. He loves beer, just not good beer :slight_smile:. Not sure how well it was stored but we will see. I have Pumking, Warlock and Oak Yeti for desserts.
