Yeesh, after all the relatives and family gatherings, I barely have any beer left!

So how hard was your supply hit this holiday season?

I think next year I'm going to put out a donation jar.
Especially for my Aunt's new husband that seemed to like my beer toooo much.

Oh well, at least they enjoyed it.. and it was the season for giving. . .

No problems here. Of course, I'm so far out in the boonies that people need a guide elk to get here. And none of my relatives even know what state I live in.

I got hit pretty hard. My Canadian Ale was gone in 5 days in the keg. We're about 1/2 way done with the Amber Ale.

1 lonely beer left after the holidays. I was on vaca for the last 2 weeks, so most of the damage was self inflicted. I have 2 batches that should be ready to drink this week though, so I will be back in business.

Both taps went dry at the same time.

Luckily I had another keg waiting to get put inline.

I was hit pretty hard as well, but had anticipated it. I've got 10g in secondary, one of which will be kegged as soon as I get my keg back. I pretty much took December off, so it's time to get something in the primary again.

I played it safe. I did not have any on tap or bottled. Just bought a couple of the Sam Adams Holiday Packs and handed them out. Most are Bud Light drinkers anyway.
