Every January I brew a barley wine and RIS and let them age until Xmas. Porters and stouts are always nice around a fire, I feel.

I will probably still be brewing some form of bastardized old ale (without the funk) in september, just like I did last year. I just want something big, malty, non-hoppy and approachable for the guests.

I love the idea of a special, year old, strong ale for the holidays!

Three Wisemen, a slightly darker than usual ESB. It is the first to kick every year at the Christmas Party.

Way back on Memorial Day weekend I made a 10ish ABV RIS in the hopes that it'll be ready for Christmas.

I have a RIS that was brewed last February that I've been aging for this years Holidays. Tasted one a month ago and it was coming along nicely.

I'm making three brews for my Christmas party this year. I'm doing a peanut butter ale/lager mix (fermented both in separate carboys then combined), a black lager like New Belgium's 1554, and I've got a recipe on hold for a pecan wheat ale. It sounds good, at least.
