Holiday Pairings – Beers to Go With Christmas Books and Stories

Since people enjoyed my post pairing books with beer so much the last time I did it, I hereby present some Christmas pairings!

There’s little doubt that, believer or no, a good number of RateBeerians will find themselves enjoying some holiday libations during the next few weeks.  With these drinks already in hand, it makes sense to pair the brews with some of the books we’ll be reading for the holidays and the Christmas movies playing 24 hours a day.

A Kidnapped Santa Claus by Alex Robinson and Theakston Old Peculier
L Frank Baum’s classic story, along with The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, was one of the first to cement old man Claus’ popularity in the modern Christmas tradition.  for such an old story, I of course have to pair the book with Old Peculier, one of my favorite old ales and a fantastic winter warmer.

I’d love to have them all listed here, but if you want to see the pairings you’ll have to pop over to my weekly HopPress column.

  1. Isn’t there a Welsh beer to go with Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”?
