Spreading Good Cheer With Beer

Beers of every flavor and description are ‘hot’ on the buying and serving list this year.  We’ve “drafted” a few pointers that will help you with your holiday entertaining.

Buy fresh.

Be sure to buy beers made by American craft brewers. This will ensure that you are getting fresh, flavorful beer produced with pride right here in the USA.

Pour It On. 

Beer is meant to be shared. A perfect way to do this is to pour bottles into a glass or clear plastic pitcher that can be passed around the table. Don’t over serve. One to one-and-a-half beers per person should be enough beer on the table at the beginning of the meal.

Give Options.

Offer at least two varieties of beer. Some like dark, others light. Offering two different choices can help to keep everyone happy.

Go with Glass.

Would you believe that brewers have longed used stemware for special beers. A thistle glass or “old-fashioned” glass is great if you have it, but wine glasses work well, too. When in doubt go with a six to eight ounce glass tumbler. It enhances the taste!
