The Blizzard of 07…What will you be drinking?

10 to 12 inches of snow by the end of the day today. Perfect weather for sitting back  drinking one of your favorite craft beers. (Or brewing a beer in the garage, which it looks like we might be doing today.) 

Right now I’ m not actually drinking a beer. Instead I am drinking what’s left of a wassail punch I made for a party last night. A concoction of cranberry, apple and lemon juice, brandy, and red wine,  warmed in a slowcooker for four-six hours with a muslin bag full of cloves and cinnamon sticks, garnished with orange slices.

Later I’ll be trying my first 2007 Anchor Brewing Company Christmas Ale. They make a unique Christmas beer every year. No two batches are the same.

What will you be drinking today?

  1. Dang! That punch sounds good.. I may have to head over to the Nahs’s before Sarah drinks it all! I’m having a Wheat that I brewed a few weeks ago and tapped last night. Pretty darn good. Is anyone watching this Cleveland game?! Holy cow, makes for an interesting football game.

  2. I had a 07 Anchor Christmas Ale, and a LagunitasBrown Shugga’. I can’t believe the BS is 9.9%. The tag line is “how come you taste so good…”

    BTW, Bella Vino in Ann Arbor had a poster with many past Anchor Christmas Ale labels. It’s pretty cool.
