Welcome to the second annual "Halfway to Christmas" special. It's June 25th, which means we're exactly six months out from everyone's favorite holiday (well, mine at least). To celebrate, I picked up a 2009 vintage of Goose Island Christmas Ale. I asked my beer store guy if they'd been hoarding these for 2 years, he said they just kind of showed up out of the blue - weird eh? Anyways, you know I'm not a huge fan of GI, especially this year, but let's see what a 2-year-old 5.7% brown ale tastes like. Cheers.
