Christmas Beer Yields Christmas Cheer

Back in early December I attended Joe Sixpack's "Ho Ho Holiday Beer's" class at Tria Fermentation School.

The All Things Considered episode came out yesterday. You can read a little blurb, and listen to it on their website here.

It's only 4 min 37 sec. I won't spoil it for you with my thoughts...but, I will say it left me wanting a much longer segment. I wanted a This American Life length act; 20 minutes or so would have been good. I imagined a whole craft beer story revolving around Philly Beer week in my head...

I will, however, post my own version of Top 10 Christmas Beers, and go head-to-head with Joe Sixpack. In no particular order...

1. De Dolle Stille Nacht
2. Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza
3. St. Bernardus Christmas Ale
4. Gouden Carolus Noel
5. Brasserie Dupont's Avec Les Bons Voeux
6. De Struise Tsjeeses
7. AleSmith YuleSmith
8. Delerium Noel
9. St. Feullien Christmas
10. Samichlaus (Anything older than 2008)

Great Job! I'm a fan.

This is one impressive list--half of which I'm having trouble finding. I'm going to post an SOS on to see if I can find them.
