Holiday Beer Tasting at Keg Liquors on Thursday, November 29.

Who the hell does Todd think he is -- me? Pretty soon he'll add DiGiorno pizza by the slice ... and then what?

But seriously, here's the lineup for this year's Keg Liquors Holiday Beer Tasting, which will be held on Thursday, November 29 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Keg Liquors is located at 617 E. Lewis & Clark Parkway in sunny Clarksville, Indiana.

I'll note that many of the beers Todd has assembled (marked *) will be featured at NABC's forthcoming Saturnalia draft festival, which kicks off on Friday, December 7, and runs pretty much the whole month of December.


Our second year of this event, this will also be our final tasting of the year. Featuring many holiday and winter beers to get your holiday shopping started early, representatives from two of our craft beer distributors will be on hand, as well as a guest appearance from Schlafly Brewing.

More beers should be added to the list, while we are waiting for a final list of our special orders of holiday beers, but here is the partial list of what we know we will be tasting based on our existing inventory:

*Delirium Noel (2007 and 2005 Vintages)
Corsendonk Christmas Ale (2006 Vintage)
*Gouden Carolus Noel (2006 Vintage)
Affligem Noel (2006 Vintage)
Avery Old Jubilation
*Harpoon Winter Warmer
*Pyramid Snow Cap
*Anchor 2007 Merry Christmas, Happy New Year Special Ale (2005 Vintage as well)
*Rogue Santa's Private Reserve
*Three Floyds Alpha Klaus
*N'ice Chouffe (2005 Vintage)
*Great Divide Hibernation Ale
*Boulder Never Summer Ale
*Breckenridge Christmas Ale
Left Hand Snow Bound
Harvey's Christmas Ale (2001 Vintage)
Gales Christmas Ale (2002 Vintage)
St. Feullien Noel (2006 Vintage)

As an added bonus, Scott from Schlafly Brewing will be on hand to sample several of their latest brews. Here is their lineup:

Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout - Around the time of the Louisiana purchase, beer was shipped in barrels. if one had been lucky enough to receive a used Bourbon barrel of Imperial Stout, this is what his/her happy taste buds would have encountered: roasty, rich, malty imperial stout with a strong dose of caramel, oak, and Bourbon character.

Schlafly Barleywine - A heavy, sweet, very strong ale with a deep, copper color and lots of hops to balance the very large amount of malt. This very large beer has also been known to bite back.

*Schlafly Christmas Ale - A full-bodied amber ale to spice up the holidays. 'Tis the season to enjoy this rich and flavorful ale made with orange peel, cloves and spicy hops.

This is a free tasting and open to the public (21 and older of course). All beers in the tasting will be $1 off the day of the tasting.

I'm actually more of a Red Baron Pizza guy. That rising crust stuff just does not cut it for me.

Maybe we can colloborate in a pizza buffet.
