This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Did we ever do a Winter Warmer/Christmas beer list? by anthro_domer
I know we've done it for Pumpkin Ales. Luckily, Christmas beers seem to have a much greater selection than Pumpkin Ales, probably because it's a more standard, traditional category. I find very few that outright suck.
Troeg's Mad Elf is probably my favorite. Then there's a whole collection of local ones that taste pretty similarly: Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas, Fat Heads Holly Jolly Christmas Ale, Southern Tier 2XMas. The Breckenridge is very good and even though it's not a traditional winter warmer, the Great Divide Hibernation Ale is one of my favorites.
I don't think I can even get into the Belgians, but there's a lot of them too. I think the Scaldis Noel is probably my favorite, but I haven't tried many.
