I guess nobody wanted to play. I didn't have much beer yesterday and nothing picture worthy. I don't get into xmas much, guess I wasn't feeling much like drinking beer. Usually on occasions where there's ridiculous amounts of food to eat, I find it a waste to drink beer.

Nothing slows down the beer consumption like a couple pounds of ham and a plate of fudge and cheese cake. Thank goodness for peppermint sticks!

I drank very little this Christmas, compared to years past. A couple beers each day on Christmas eve, Christmas day and yesterday.

Between eating and driving I hardly drink on these holidays. IMO beer and heavy food don't mix anyway.

+1.  I get to full/bloated when combining mass amounts of both.

+2.  I like having a few beers better when I've eaten a sensible meal, not a bunch of carb heavy holiday food.

6 beers and some pistachios = sensible meal.

Spent most of the time feeling like crap so I think I had 2 beers the day before Christmas Eve, that was it for the weekend.

Compared the oatmeal stout and cherry oatmeal stout we made (I like the cherry version, weak cherry flavor but it dried it out a bit and gave it a little tart flavor). Then I had a Pilsner, hoping to kick the keg to make room on the taps for the Dortmunder that's been lagering.
