Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy Festivus to everyone! I appreciated all the feedback I received from my online critics on what would be the perfect beer for me to toast the holidays.

Thinking of those two helps revive my holiday spirit better than an entire bowl of spiked egg nog. For the Future of Freedom Foundation
