Finally the Christmas season has come and gone from our calenders.  Christmas parties, family dinners, presents, the 24 hour marathon of A Christmas Story on TNT (you know you watched it too), using up the remainder of vacation time…yes, all the typical trappings that come with the yule tide season.

At the annual Mercurio Christmas Party, I got to crack open some killers bottles for my guests such as Goose Island Bourbon County Cherry Rye (which was outstanding), Ithaca Le Bleu, Fantome Clos Peral Batch 2 and  Bruery 5 Golden Rings.  I also had a Beer Advocate user hit me up about being in town for the holidays, who stopped by the party with special release bottles of Eclipse 18 year Elijah Craig 50/50 and Eclipse 20 year Elijah Craig 50/50 (thanks Anotherjoe) too.

Thankfully, amongst all those doings, there was still time to tick a beer or two through all of it.
