Birra del Borgo 25 Dodici and Italy Christmas Beers


On Monday night I sat down to watch the Saints play the worst game they’ve played in a while against the Seahawks with a bottle of 25 Dodici from Birra del Borgo. The 25 Dodici definitely took the sting out of the Saints’ inept play in Seattle. Little did I know that we would be… → Read More

Abita Christmas Ale 2012


Jenn and Estelle aren’t surprised by this article (let’s be honest, who is?); it’s time to taste the 2012 edition of Abita’s Christmas Ale.

Great Lakes Christmas Ale


Christmas! Ale. Great Lakes Christmas Ale to be exact. I reviewed another seasonal holiday ale here. And this is my other favorite. Let me tell you a story about this ale.

Abita Christmas Ale 2011


Happy Turkey Day! After an eventful day I’m kicking off the Christmas season with an Abita Christmas Ale! I think this one is a little stronger than last year’s version. It is, however, generally the same as last year’s even though the recipe changes from year to year. I may be having a few more… → Read More

Abita Christmas Ale


Presenting Abita Christmas Ale live from the Flying Saucer in Houston. It has certainly improved from last year’s batch, which I found to be watery. It’s like Christmas in your mouth. More to come later, including the Flying Saucer’s Christmas glass. Unfortunately it’s a bit dark where I’m sitting, so the pictures require flash and… → Read More
