Old Chicago Winter Mini Tour

So, as promised, here are your beer listings for the Overland Park and Olathe locations:

For both:
1) Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale
2) Sam Adams Winter Lager
3) Chimay Red Label
4) Stella Artois (UGH SERIOUSLY???)

For Overland Park:
5) Free State Santa’s Helper
6) Schlafly Coffee Stout
7) Odells Isolation Ale
8) Shiner Holiday Cheer (The smiley here is what happens when you put an eight next to a parenthesis. Seriously. I’m sort of rolling my eyes, but I’m leaving it anyway. Enjoy the dorkiness.)
9) Lost Coast WinterBraun
10) Boulevard Nutcracker

For Olathe:
5) Breckenridge Christmas
6) Odells Isolation Ale
7) Lost Coast Winterbraun
8) Schlafly Coffee Stout
9) Boulevard Nutcracker
10) Free State Santa’s Helper

So, people, I hope that helps you plan your drinking. As I’m not a fan of the Boulevard Nutcracker, I’ll be avoiding that this time through. However, I’m not likely to finish the tour either – I CAN’T STAND STELLA ARTOIS. So BOOHISS on that particular corporate choice, along with a wag of my finger and a plea that next year we can have the Delirium Noel instead. Seriously, people, there are so many interesting Belgian beers out there – why stick with the Bud Light of all of them? GAG.

For the rest of the list, I’m shocked that there’s no New Belgium on there – where’s the 2 Below this year? – and I’m equally shocked that the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale isn’t on either list. I am, however, totally excited to see both Free State and Lost Coast on the lists, so A+++ there.

Enjoy your beer.
