Nutcracker's Out

I don't mean to cause you to leave the house, but I'm sitting here drinking the first of many Nutcracker Ales (it's a Steve Decker) right now. It's in stores all across the metro.

Keeping up with our streak, we were the first to buy Nutcracker at our selected store, which was Jack's this year. Last year was Tipsy's.

Once again, my ode to Nutcracker.
With a name like Nutcracker
I didn't think I'd be a backer
Yet, I love thee so
I get pretty low
When you're no longer around

Our time together is so short
I never get bored
With your wonderful taste
that is caramel based
I drink with too much haste.

Ooh, Nutcracker I do love you
And you love me too
You treat me right
We never fight
Even when there's too many of you in a night.


  1. I'll have to keep a bottle from this year since I helped hop it. A novelty I suppose. Did you keep a bottle from the year you hopped with the guys?

  2. No, we drank them all. Never even thought about keeping some.

    I did want my name on a bottle though. Jeremy said no.
