The Lost Abbey / Port Brewing Christmas in July

What: Charity

When: Saturday - July 19, 2014 @ 11:00AM to Saturday - July 19, 2014 @ 08:00PM

Where: The Lost Abbey, San Marcos, California
St. Nicholas makes his way to the Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey Tasting Room for the 6th Annual release of Bourbon Barrel-aged Santa’s Little Helper (Port’s Imperial Stout) and a Christmas in July celebration to benefit The Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation on Saturday, July 19th, 2014. As in previous years, the event will be split in two sessions: 11am – 3pm and 4pm to 8pm.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice through the first 6 months of 2014, as long as you bring an unwrapped toy (valued at $15 or more) you’re in! Does your Automatonophobia make it impossible to shop in a Toy Store? Not a problem, for just $15 at the door you’re set to join us for food, fun, entertainment and photos with Santa all included! (This is a Family-Friendly event)

The Port Brewing and Lost Abbey “Giving Tree” will also be making an appearance, for an extra donation to Toys for Tots, you’ll receive a gift from the tree. Gifts can include rare and vintage bottles, Port Brewing / Lost Abbey gear, tickets to our legendary Barrel Night during San Diego Beer Week and some goodies from our friends around San Diego!

All of The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing’s full core lineup of beers will be available including Mongo and Red Barn, plus a few specialty taps will be available (more info to come). Besides the fat man in the red suit (who will be available for pictures throughout the day), we’ll also be celebrating 6 years of releasing a Bourbon barrel-aged version of our Imperial Stout, Santa’s Little Helper (in it’s new 375ml format to allow a broader distribution). A robust beer with tones of sweet malt, dark cocoa and notes of deep bourbon, Santa’s Little Helper is the perfect accompaniment to fruitcake during a California Christmas in July.
