Holiday Beer Surprises at Alamo Lamar

briefinterviewswithhideousmen-blogI love this season for so many reasons: great weather, caroling, presents under the tree, pumpkin pies, leftover turkey sanwiches, etc.  But let us not forget the true meaning of the season: the arrival of the seasonal holiday beers.  I just got word from Jim Hughes, head beverage honcho over at the Alamo South Lamar.  He has just completed his seasonal beer tap rotation and the 2009 lineup is looking mighty strong.  On draft we are now online with Anchor Christmas 09, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Real Ale Coffee Porter, Anchor Old Foghorn, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout and Shiner Holiday Cheer, and in bottles we are carrying Sam Smith's Winter Welcome, Deschutes Jubelale and Boulevard Nutcracker.

The real gem, however, is that we saved one keg of Anchor Christmas 2008 and today is the first day to tap into that rarity.  We have one keg only, about 100 pints (99 if you count the pint I'm savoring this afternoon after work), so come in this week and try it out or you will miss out for the season!  Next year, we'll have 2008, 2009 and 2010 all on tap at the same time.  I'm getting excited for that day already!
