Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas -- and not Great Lakes Christmas Ale -- was selected as the best holiday beer by 60 people participating in the "12 Beers of Christmas" tasting this week at D'Agneses Trattoria in Akron. Earlier, I reported that Great Lakes was chosen as the top beer by mistake. My apologies.
Troegs Mad Elf finished a close second, and Southern Tier 2XMAS was third.
In addition to Thirsty Dog, Troegs and Southern Tier, the event featured Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Avery Old Jubilation, Goose Island Christmas Ale, Anchor Steam Merry Christmas Ale, Rogue Santa's Private Reserve, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, Breckenridge Christmas Ale, Bell's Christmas Ale and Great Divide Hibernation Ale.
