Our beer experts have chosen their choices for the 6 best holiday beers this season. See their picks below!




 The Bruery ’9 Ladies Dancing’
Allocated item, made with vanilla bean, cocoa nibs, and coffee. Tastes like tiramisu.





 Mikkeller ‘Winbic’- A Saison, spontan ale hybrid, this wild ale is new to the Mikkeller Christmas lineup.
“It comes in a magnum [750mL] bottle and it is awesome.”- Brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø




Claque Pépin Cidre Bouche- A classic Normandy Cider, they allow the apples to fall from
the trees before they harvest them, creating an oxidized, nutty funk flavor.





Anchorage Brewing ‘Whiteout’- An ale brewed with spices and aged in Chardonnay barrels.
Undergoes three fermentations: one in tank with Belgian yeasts; a second in French Chardonnay
barrels with Brettanomyces; a third in bottle for natural carbonation.





Trois Dames Winter Sour Ale- Super allocated, this American Wild Sour is brewed with oranges
and ginger during the boiling and in the lagering process. Spicy, lightly sour, and a blend of wit and Saison aged in wood for six months.






To Ol ‘Shameless Santa’- A Belgian strong Red Ale, this caramelly, malty, deliciously
bready brew goes great with cookies left for Santa and roasted marshmallows.
