My friend Dan in Minnesota just wrote to let me know that Southern Tier Brewing in Lakewood, New York has a seasonal Christmas beer called Krampus. He didn’t say whether or not he’s tried it, but here’s the label:
Speaking of special beers in honor of the eternally evil Krampus, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it yet, but our friends at the Corner Brewery have whipped up two special releases for our Krampus Ball on December 11 – one naughty and one nice – and I hope to be able to share details about them both with you soon. (I’ve yet to verify it, but I’ve heard that the naughty one has been filtered through soiled lingerie collected from the Ypsi Community Center’s lost-and-found.) I’m not promising anything, but, assuming I’m finally able to shake this cold that I’ve got, I’d like to get out my video camera and interview Logan Schaedig, the guy who is making both brews, like I did last time. So, stay turned for that, beer lovers.
