    Santa’s little helper reminds me of what my kids left Santa every Christmas. Of course there was the usual milk and cookies but I also always said that Santa loves a beer and a cigar.
    This came from a flippant remark the father made in the old Calvin and Hobbes comic. While my children believed in Santa this was part of the tradition.


    1. That’s funny. When I hear, “Santa’s Little Helper” I think of the dog on the Simpson’s


    2. Hi Jon, I love this part of your tradition, Who says that Satna wouldn’t mind something a bit different… LOL


  2. Santa’s little helpers and beer… Nice combination. Santa having a big tummy, I always thought he might be beer drinker.

    A Christmas beer that must be tried and added to the list is the 11.46% alc Troeg’s Mad Elf Ale….it is absolutely out of this world and a great gift for Christmas beer drinkers

    I truly love the beer descriptions and the history behind the ales does make one thirsty. Thank you for the information. I am now an informed buyer.


    1. Edward, One of things I decided to was to offer more than just a review. every one does that

    I love the flavors around the holiday season and have especially enjoyed a mix of hard cider and Pumpkin ale. These flavors also sound delicious and seem like beers that would go great with family and friends during a holiday gathering. The names like “Yellow Snow” are pretty entertaining as well.


    1. Hey Kelly, They do don’t they. I think it is as much fun reading all the interesting names as it is to taste them. Happy Holidays. :-)))


  6. A friend’s daughter gives him a few craft beers for him to try each Christmas and I have passed on this article to see if we have any similar ones in Australia.


    1. Thanks Susan, Do tell us how they liked them if they should give them a try. 🙂


    1. Hi Cheryl, So do I, when it comes to beer. Patrick makes these posts so much fun to read. 🙂


  7. One of my favorite parts about going to Cost Plus World Market is looking at the labels on the craft beers. That could be an entire blog in and of itself!


    1. Hi Jeri, You are so right. It is a hoot to read some of the labels and their descriptions of the beer. Their creativity is inviable. 🙂

    I’m not really a drinker so I don’t know much about wines or beers. I probably should since most of my family likes to drink but I just never got into it because of my mother. I’d like to learn more every now and then though. I will be reading up on your wine ideas when we move since my house will be more of a tuscan theme so I will need to drink wine more then lol.


    1. Hi Krystle, LOL… the Tuscan feel of a new house isn’t a bad reason to start learning about the different wines. I also understand your reticence with drinking as well. I love to read about the different histories of how some of the wines came about. It can be quit entertaining. 🙂
