Hey guys! It’s been crazy this year and haven’t gotten around to writing much or even seeing many films, unfortunately. But I’m back!
I did a series last holiday season with the 25 beer/movie pairings for the Christmas season. It did not last because 25 is waaaaaaaay too many. This year I, instead, decided to narrow it to 12! So without further adieu, my first beer pairing is…
Charlie Brown Christmas
Sure this seems like a copout. Is it a movie? Debatable. But is it awesome? You bet your last nickel it is. Charlie Brown’s Christmas special is an iconic piece of television that generations have enjoyed. Sure, it hasn’t aged all that well in terms of content (metal trees?!) but we have continue to love its 60’s charm every holiday season. It is a sweet classic!
Which brings me to another sweet classic…
Bourbon County Stout
For many, the beer drinkers bourbon barrel stout, the Bourbon County Stout from Goose Island is a beer sought after on Black Friday every year, which adds to its Christmas relevance. Sure, it’s a product of inBev, but we can overlook that for now. You may be asking yourself, “A stout? For Charlie Brown?” Yes. A stout. For Charlie Brown. This is not any ordinary stout. It is a sipper to drink while sitting by the fireside and it has a very high sugar content which is one of many reasons why it is so alcoholic. Cheers!
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s pairing!
