The holidays. The most wonderful time of the year to spend money you don’t have to travel multiple hours through testicle-twisting traffic to spend time with family who, albeit are special, annoy and stress the hell out of you within the first 45 minutes.
If there is one time where a nice, relaxing beer is needed, it’s during the month of December. Thankfully, there are many options to choose from to enjoy a tall, cold one by the fireplace while waiting for St. Nick to squeeze his fat ass down the chimney so your drunk Uncle on Christmas Eve can finally have a formidable shirtless wrestling partner other than the the Christmas tree he says has been laughing at him.
It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus, there are numerous great, seasonal drinks that are specifically brewed for the holiday season that’ll take out the fire but keep in the warmth.
Here are some of the best holiday beers you can choose from this winter. Take our word for it, or click on the links in the gallery to see what BeerAdvocate has to say…
