On the seventh day of Christmas millinerd gave to me: Two more beer recommendations. Gritty McDuff's Christmas Ale from Maine, and the intimidatingly good Gouden Carolus Nöel from Deutschland. Gritty tops Celebration Ale, providing further evidence for East Coast rivaling West Coast breweries, but both coasts have a long way to go before they rival Germany.
None of this Christmas is over stuff please. Five days to go. Stretch it out.
