Christmas 2010 … A New Tradition is Born

Last night, a discussion born of Shiner Bock turned into an idea for a new holiday tradition: The Twelve Beers of Christmas.  Each day during the Twelve Days of Christmas, Aubrey and I will try a new beer that we’ve never had before.  And by the way, that’s the regular Twelve Days of Christmas, not the Bob & Doug McKenzie* version.

Now … you may be asking WHICH Twelve Days of Christmas we are going to cover.  And that’s a good question because I didn’t know there were so many varieties.  Per Wikipedia (the only source for answers), The Twelve Days of Christmas, also known as Christmastide, begin on Christmas Day (December 25th) and end on January 5th.

So join us this holiday season as we drink twelve new beers and then give a brief review of each.   Until then, prosit!

* For those of Aubrey’s generation, Bob & Doug were characters on the sketch comedy show “SCTV.”   They were Canadian who loved drinking beer and all things Canadian.  Here’s an animated version of their “Twelve Days of Christmas:” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2oPio60mK4 .  For more on Bob & Doug, check out their page at Wikipedia (the only source for information): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_and_Doug_McKenzie .
