It may not be categorized as a "Christmas style beer", but my favorite beer to drink at Christmas time is Gulden Draak.  Try it and you'll see exactly what I mean.

I just found out 2-Below isn't the best...

Just a hoppy Fat Tire.

I had a couple last night at a bar and was underwhelmed.  Just not that great of a beer.

SN Celebration Ale is definitely one of my favorites.  I also like the Bad Elf series when I can find it.
