Tasted on: Christmas eve., Thursday December 24, 2009.

Note:  This was beer was made only once.  This was bottle #705 of 1800 made.

I was very impressed with this beer.  It was smooth, well balanced and very drinkable for a Christmas beer, or even  for any beer. If some how you can still find this beer, I say stock up.   I am looking forward to trying other beers from Big Sky in the future after absolutely enjoying this beer.  Great beer & Merry Christmas!!!

On my quest for at least one Christmas/Winter beer a day between Thanksgiving & Christmas, this is the last of my 29 daily x-mas beers I’ve had.   I will now give my liver a day to rest on Christmas day, then…..

On Boxing day I will be sucking down a few Westvleteren 12’s, 8’s and maybe even their blonde.  Then I’m going to be drinking a very sour beer, more so then the Rodenbach grand cru, their Foederbier, which you can only find at…  🙂 

Merry Christmas from the BEER STOCKED REFRIGERATOR
