    I hope to start clearing out the cellar. Ideally over the holidays I will go with King Henry, BCBS Cherry Rye, BCBS Backyard Rye, Abyss, Southern Char, and maybe BCBS Vanilla.

    Hello I am new to the forum. But I am looking for a good christmas ale to drink during the holidays I am currently drinking Great Lakes CA and have had Sam Adams Winter Lager and I like them both. But really like GL Christmas Ale. I heard 12 dogs of Christmas Ale is very good? Any suggestions from some of you who are more experienced. Thanks,Hammy

    Flavors from Christmas ales are kind of all over the place, so just read thru this entire thread and take your choice of whatever is available in your local store.

    Another one who hit the new Nebco location so growlers of Fuzzy Baby Ducks, IST, and Fat-Ten-3 (milk stout) will definitely be opened. Lindley Park seems like a nice choice with deserts; also probably bring a crazy ass Bruery bottle like Melange 3 or Bois and something light and sour from my few remaining Cantillons and HF bottles. Can't stay away from the BCBW since it came out so that's a likely candidate.

    Wondering if I should open a 97 Triple Bock or if that will ruin the holiday cheer.:grimacing:
