[list][*]Boulevard Nutcracker - quintessential winter pale ale. Roasty caramel and toffee flavors with a nice spicy hop presence. Best holiday offering for the money ($6.99 a sixer)
[*]Point St. Benedict's Winter Ale - hands down Points best offering. They are not a real strong craft brewery, but this one is delightful. Lots of subtle spice notes going with some good malt and mild hop character. If you're ass squeaks when you walk, this winter seasonal is perfect for you at $5.99 a sixer. Second best offering for the money.
I have a bunch of others on hand that I have yet to get to and some others that I will be on the look out for over the holiday season.
Cheers and Happy Holiday's!!

I was rather annoyed though...felt like I was in a disc golf course review atmosphere beer version. I also realized how many people van chase. These guys plan their entire day during releases and follow the scheduled distributing route. FUKIN LAME!

Wouldn't this make you a van chaser if you're asking where the next delivery will be?
