A very beery holiday

If you follow us on Twitter you may have noticed that we made out like bandits on Christmas with beer gifts. Family members, secret santas, and friends from far away places showered us with beer for the holidays. We got some old favorites like Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout and some local brews like Ommegang Seduction. Thanks to our friend Hanna we received some great Midwest beers, brews we long for but cannot partake of in NYC.

We were very happy to get the beer, but were also impressed at how much  thoughtfulness was put into each gift. None were a random assortment. If you know a craft beer lover, think about giving them beer for your next exchange.

Here’s what we came home with:

From the Midwest

Bell’s Brewery – Christmas Ale
Bell’s Brewery – Special Double Cream Stout
Half Acre Beer Company – Daisy Cutter Pale Ale
New Glarus Brewing Company – Fat Squirrel
Two Brothers Brewing Company – The Bitter End (not pictured because we drank them!)

From Secret Santa

Brewery Ommegang – Seduction
Allagash Brewing Company – Four
Brouwerij Het Anker – Cuvee Van De Keizer Blauw
Damm S.A. – Estrella Damm Inedit

From Our Cousin in Virginia

Highland Brewing Company – Gaelic Ale

From Dad/Father-in-Law

Two four packs of Samuel Smith – Oatmeal Stout

Thanks, y’all!
