While listening to carolers sing the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ I stopped to think about what the twelve days of craft beer in northern California would look like and this is what I came up with.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me..
A taste of 12.1% ABV North Coast Brewing Company’s Barrel Aged Old Rasputin
11.25% Knee Deep Brewing Company’s Simtra Triple IPA
10% Almanac Beer Company’s Tequila Barrel Noir
9.99% Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Brown Shugga’
8% Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder
7.5% Bear Republic Brewing Company’s Racer 5
6.8% Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s Celebration Ale
FIIIIIVE% Moonlight Brewing Company’s Death and Taxes
4.5% Out of Bounds Brewing Company’s Whole Cone Session IPA
3.8% Auburn Alehouse’s Old Town Brown
2 Cold pints with a buddy
And a Growler with the family!!!

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones. As always I encourage you to enjoy good beer, but always designate a driver, take a taxi or use public transportation when need be.
