2010 christmas holiday beer pairing guide

Christmas is sort of like a final culmination of beer geekery for me. A time when I get out all these random east coast bottles and submit my west coast hop loving brothers to what I have been slinging back all year. Its also a chance to crack a few bottles I’ve been saving up and share them with my family. This year has gone way overboard and I’ve broken it all down to a seven course, five hour extravaganza drank amongst four or (hopefully) five people. This is sort of a predecessor to my “Best of 2009″ list coming next week…
