Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas. It is a simple greeting but filled with memories of a happy childhood and times of good cheer. Now that my kids are grown and the grand kids are in another state far, far away, Christmas has an added blessing of “times of good beer” and trying the ever-growing variety of Winter Warmers and Christmas Ales. Here is a sampling of what is on tap for the HTBN family today.

Peace, love and hope be with you for the coming year. May your beers be merry and bright and not all your frothy heads be white. A nice creamy head is a joy as well. Prost!

And the winner of this taste-off was . . . . . Dick’s Double Diamond Winter Ale from Dick’s Brewing Company in Centralia, WA.
