I look forward to Sierra Nevada's Celebration every Christmas. I not only stock up on theirs, but try to brew a couple batches of a "clone" of it. But the one I really wait for from Christmas to Christmas is Scaldis Noel. The bottle even looks Christmasy, with the little cabin and the sparkly red, white and blue label. I spend the first part of Christmas Eve day cleaning Dungeness crab for dinner that night, prepping Christmas dinner, cleaning the house and wrapping presents. Then, about mid afternoon, I sit down with a goblet of Noel and sip it slowly while listening to Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, and Garrison Keillor Christmas CDs. A great reward for my efforts and it really gets me into the spirit. How about you guys? What beer do you look forward to that really makes it feel like Christmas?
