The Twelve Beers of Christmas 2014

Yes, I know that's thirteen beers in the picture below. For our 5th Christmas of The Twelve Beers, we're going to celebrate with a Brewer's Dozen!

This year's theme is craft beer in cans. That's right, you can get some great beers in cans and we're going to sample thirteen of them. So grab yourself a six pack (or four pack for some of the beers) and head out to the lake or the pool or the hot tub (probably more appropriate for this time of year.)

Like last year, all beers were purchased at Spec's in Lubbock but this year they averaged a much more reasonable $9 per six (or four) pack than last year's twelve expensive beers that were a minimum of $10 per bottle (in a 22 oz bomber or 750 ml.)

From left to right (and the order we'll drink them in) we have:

  1. White Rascal by Avery Brewing Company
  2. Scruffy's Smoked Alt by Cedar Creek Brewery
  3. Longfin by Ballast Point Brewing Company
  4. Wyld Extra Pale Ale by Uinta Brewing Company
  5. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale by Anderson Valley Brewing Company
  6. Old Chub NITRO by Oskar Blues Grill & Brew
  7. Sweet Action by Sixpoint Brewery
  8. Sex Panther by SanTan Brewing Co.
  9. Autumnal Molé Stout by Ska Brewing Co.
  10. Wasatch GhostRider White IPA by Utah Brewers Cooperative
  11. Walloon by Southern Star Brewing Company
  12. Upslope Craft Lager by Upslope Brewing Company - Lee Hill
  13. Imperial Java Stout by Santa Fe Brewing Company
Buy them now and we'll crack open the White Rascal on Christmas Day!


  1. "Sex Panther"? Sixty Percent of the time it works every time.

  2. If you drink all six, I think it works 360 percent of the time all the time.
