Christmas Ale is here, oh bully!
Tis the season…eventually?
I know the holidays aren’t too far away when I’m able to get my paws on some Christmas Ale from Great Lakes Brewing Company.
Christmas Ale>Hallmark Christmas movies (my sincerest apologies to Candace Cameron Bure, Lacey Chabert, Danica McKellar and Lori Loughlin).
Christmas music before December? Annoying (it’s only November 9th and people are already sharing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” on social media).
However, Christmas Ale before December? H-e-l-l to the y-e-a-h!
My wife introduced me to it back in 2016, when we spent our first Christmas together in Cleveland.
Ever since then, I simply refuse to endure a holiday season without it.
So when my friend, who works at a Bottle shop in Cary, NC, informed me earlier today that a shipment of Christmas Ale had arrived this week, I didn’t care if it meant not getting home until almost 5 p.m. on a Friday.
I was gonna get some of that tasty, succulent brew.
For 13.99 per six-pack, which is still the most I’ve ever spent on six bottles of beer.
But you know what? I bought two six-packs, because it’s worth every sip.
Yes, I know Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, but if He were to come back to Earth today he would totally pitch in for a couple six-packs of Christmas Ale.
The Son of God wouldn’t settle for Natty Light.
