Where: Boatyard Brewing Company, 432 East Paterson, Kalamazoo
What: The Most Extensive Christmas Beer Release Party on the Planet!
Eight years ago, long before the Boatyard Brewing Company was even a thought, Dan and I brewed a beer for Christmas, our Christmas Eve Porter. This beer was our gift to friends, a gift made using our memories of our Christmases past. The smell of vanilla, raisins, and rum swirled around the brew pot as put in motion a practice that has grew to included everyone in our love of Christmas. Preparing for this Christmas, it seems that every member of the Boatyard family has made their mark on our Christmas Beer offerings. We are excited to celebrate with our city, the joy of Christmas tastes and smells with our Christmas Eve Open House. It will be a grand day as our friends, regulars, visitors, and family join us to prepare for the celebrations to come. Boatyard Brewing Company will open at Noon on Christmas Eve with joy in our hearts and an excellent collection of Christmas offerings. If you miss us on Christmas Eve, we will be offering these beers beginning the day after Christmas.
Be prepared….there are many more in production…we still have a few weeks to go!
