12 beers of Christmas: Day 2

Eleven pipers piping - sounds magical....or it sounds like eleven fourth graders playing recorders, since no one in this century has ever met someone who would identify themselves as a "piper." Skip the pipers and take advantage of the weather today.

Bad weather doesn't have to be the enemy, if we use it to slow us down and admire in the beauty of taking a day to hibernate from the outside world. So turn on your favorite childhood Christmas claymation special, spread out your wrapping supplies for all those presents you fought so hard to find yesterday and pour yourself an nice, hoppy IPA.

Day 2 - Accumulation White IPA - New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, Colo.

As the snow piles up outside, what could be more appropriate than New Belgium's escape from the bitter weather - an equally bitter beer. This seasonal treat is fruity, a bit spicy and robustly hoppy. You can admire this cloudy golden beer topped with white foam, much like the drifts of snow outside your window, from the cozy comfort of your own home.

Another plus to this delightful holiday brew - it's much easier to find than that popular toy your child asked for. Accumulation is widely available across the country as grocery stores and beer meccas alike. So, sip to your heart's content, admire the cozy landscape on the bottle and cross your fingers for enough snow build up to suspend work and school tomorrow.
