Seasonal sipping: sweater-inspired beer labels


It’s unclear exactly when holiday sweaters—the jingle bell- and bow-crusted pullovers moms favored circa 1992—became ironically funny and not just a source of embarrassment in old family photos. But it happened. Now, ugly sweater parties are a wintertime phenomenon, and breweries are getting in on the fun with knit-themed labels and parties.

Oh, and save the dates: Heritage Brewing hosts an ugly sweater party and Peppermint Stout release on Dec. 17 in Manassas, Virginia; and Short’s Brewing Co. throws its Annual Ugly Sweater Party in Bellaire, Michigan on Dec. 23.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
