The Thirsty Beagle: Roughtail gets in holiday spirit with beer party

Roughtail gets in holiday spirit with beer party

If you don't think I've been blaring Christmas music in my car since mid-November, brother, you are sadly mistaken.

Right after the annual Beagle Family Disney World Summer Vacation, Christmastime is my favorite time of year. But not just for Bing Crosby, Christmas lights and the Rudolph claymation special.

Christmastime beer is pretty good, too. The flavors and smells of Christmas -- all the spices and pines -- just work in beer. Plus there's something about enjoying a beer by the fire, next to the Christmas tree, that just makes beer seem more special. I know, I know, pretty sappy. Either way, when you know how I feel about the combination of beer and Christmas, there's no doubt that I'd be a sucker for an event poster like this:


This is happening tonight at Roughtail Brewing, and it includes this beer lineup:


Clearly, you can do worse if you're looking for something to do tonight. But that's not all that's on the docket on the OKC beer scene today. Let's take a look:

-Slaughter's Hall is hosting a Left Hand tap takeover tonight, featuring Polestar Pilsner, Warrior Fresh Hop IPA, Twin Sister Double IPA and Fade To Black Baltic Porter. Bonus note: Slaughter's Hall has Anchor Christmas on tap, as well.

-Mustang Brewing's tap room is open from 4 to 7 p.m. today with offerings from both Mustang and Elk Valley Brewing.

-Not tonight, but Oak & Ore is offering up a cool deal at 11 a.m. Sunday to go along with their new brunch menu. From their FB page: 

"Each Sunday for brunch in December we will be featuring a different coffee beer and doing some cool giveaways! The first one up is from our friends at COOP Ale Works. We will be tapping a keg of the coffee version of the famed Territorial Reserve Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, as well as giving away COOP pint glasses and swag (while supplies last). You won't want to miss out!"

Pints and Pins

-The United States now has its largest amount of breweries ever -- surpassing the previous high-water mark established in 1873.

-Anthem Brewing reports they are getting ready to package their 2015 Festivus ale. I don't have a specific timeline on release, but will update if I get more details.

-Iron Monk has updated the hours at its tap room and is now offering tours. Full details available at the Iron Monk FB page.
