On tap at the North Pole

His eyes -- how they twinkled, his dimples how merry.
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry.
No milk and cookies could produce such good cheer.
I knew in an instant, St. Nick likes good beer!

Brewers offer their most interesting beers around the holidays, and the Goose has stocked only bottles on "the good list" in our cellar.

Affligem Noel from Belgium pours a nice copper brown and thick white head. With flavors of dried fruits, winter spices, pepper, and citrus, it's a perfect pint for holiday desserts and mild cheeses.

Bitter chocolate malt and dark roast coffee flavors are heavy in Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, a balanced stout that's surprisingly smooth for a beer that boasts 10% alcohol by volume.
