Only 12 days left until the big day! While 12 drummers drumming from the old classic carol sounds like quite a party on a lovely snowy weekend night, the reality is most of us will be shopping amongst crazed parents and rude families who refuse to follow the implied flow of traffic in the mall corridors.

So instead of renting your own personal marching band, why not take a moment to celebrate the season and kick back with an amazing holiday brew offered by one of the exceptional breweries across our country? Need a little help tracking down a tasty toaster? Never fear, you can find the twelve days of beer here.

Day 1: 4 Elf Winter Warmer Ale - Dark Horse Brewing Co, Marshall, Mich.

This molasses colored ale will warm you to your core. Crack one open after a long day battling crowds and depleting your bank account. With scents of clove and spice and a warm alcohol burn at the finish this beer will take you to a very merry place.

At 8.75% ABV this ale will give you a rosy flush quickly and the ultra spicy mix of ginger, nutmeg and dark roasty malt flavor will be sure to please. So, kick those drummers to the curb, finish that shopping checklist and then grab a four pack of this cozy holiday brew and enjoy!
