Default Trying Christmas/Winter Beers

My local beer store has SO many Holiday Beers to choose from. Trying them all is impossible, although I'd love to.

I called 5 fellow brewer/beer drinkers and we agreed to buy 6 different sixpacks and split them up. So for 8 bucks, we all get to taste 6 different beers.

Wish I had thought of this at Octoberfest/Marzen time.

That's a neat idea!

I bought a six pack of the Full Moon (Blue Moon) Winter Ale last night.
It's drinkable but I'm very unimpressed.....

I tried this at work, with me bringing homebrew them bringing in their favorites. They drank almost all I brought in, grabbed their beer and left. It wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

I do like your idea though. We had a Holiday Brew Fest in town last week. I really enjoy going to them because I always sample brews I would never buy a 6 of to find out if I like them or not.
