Beer Loves Company 12 Days of Christmas (in 6 Days)!


12 days

Well, that’s it everyone. Santa came and went, the ball dropped and here we sit in 2013 with no major holidays on the horizon. Early January is really nothing to sing or carol about. It is kind of a cold, wintery, downer…or so we thought. Turns out the 12 Days of Christmas actually begin AFTER Christmas and go right through January 6 or 7 (depending on which version you follow). The Christmas carol which gave birth to this tradition was first published in England in 1780, though it is believed to have originated in France years prior (’tis the Saison anyone?). Here at BLC, we are improvising a bit and starting on January 3, one of the more uneventful days of the year. Oh, and we will be replacing the “true love gifts” (which are essentially all birds) with delicious craft beers. Two per day, to be exact. Think of it as 12 Days of Christmas with tasty liquid treats replacing the (insane) gifts of birds condensed and presented in the usual, cheerful BLC manner. So check back tomorrow for the beginning of our “Twelve Beers of Christmas (in Six Days)”. It will be a wonderful mix of seasonal and rarer brews we have been enjoying over the holidays. Here is a sneak peek at one of the brews that will be featured.
