Ho Ho Hum: Revue tries to find a reason to drink the beers of the season

Written by Joe Boomgaard | Monday, 30 November 2015 14:44 |

Brewers have used the season as a reason for making holiday-themed craft beers, which simply serve to distract drinkers from the many dozens of styles out there that are just so much better tasting (at least in this writer’s opinion). Regardless of our predilections for other styles, we decided to set aside our War on Christmas Beers for a day to see how they stacked up.
