Beery Christmas from East Texas Brews: A few of our Favorite Christmas Brews

This time of year is for friends and family to get back together to catch up on life and to enjoy each others company.  It also happens to be the busiest time of the year for liquor/wine and bottle shops.  

Whether you are enjoying a glass of bubbly this Christmas or opening a special beer that was shipped to you from Uncle Joe in Connecticut, there is joy to be had by every one of us! 

So what exactly is a Christmas beer? Is it a beer full of pine tree extract and eggnog added to it?  Not exactly but it is typically a higher ABV festive beer that is a Belgium Style or a cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.  Basically whatever the three wiseman where bringing gifts of can be found in a Christmas beer!  Whether it's a IPA, a Imperial Stout, or a Strong Belgium, anything technically can be considered a Christmas beer for marketing purposes.  

Here is a list of a few of our Favorite Holiday beers to drink this time of year from  

Sierra Nevada | Celebration Ale IPA

Shiner | Holiday Cheer

The Bruery | 9 Ladies Dancing

Great Raft Brewing | Awkward Uncle

St. Arnold Brewing | Christmas Ale

Merry Christmas from all of us at East Texas Brews and have a Happy New Year!!!

       Cheers! -Joel, Jeff, Jonathan, and Allen
