Peaks and Pints Campfire Crowler Christmas: Fruitcake!

What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by getting Christmas spirits into you? And by spirits we mean holiday draft beer. Beginning today through 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 24, Peaks & Pints has dedicated a third of our Western red cedar tap log to holiday beers for you to take home in our 32-ounce Campfire Crowlers. Today, we suggest you take home a Campfire Crowler full of Brouwerij St. Bernardus Christmas Ale, then watch the B-52s’ Fred Schneider sing about the beer’s ingredients

Leave it to the B-52s’ Fred Schneider to craft the best Christmas camp this side of John Waters. His wonderfully kitschy dance party band, The Superions, released Destination … Christmas! (Fanatic) in 2010, which includes “Christmas Conga,” the jolly “Crummy Christmas Tree” and the sexy “Santa Je T’Aime,” which proves that Fred can ho-ho-ho with the best of ’em. But, for the first day of Peaks and Pints Campfire Crowler Christmas draft beer pairing we chose his “Fruitcake” song.

The are all nuts,
Citrus peel, lots of stuff,
Add what you feel!
Sticks of butter, cinnamon,
Molasses, lots of dark rum,
Artificial color, artificial flavor,
If your family don’t want it,
Give it to a neighbor!
It’s fruit cake!
It’s fruit cake!

St. Bernardus Christmas Ale

10% ABV, 28 IBU

Brouwerij St Bernardus is famous for both their beers and their heritage. The brewery used to brew the famous Westvleteren beers before the monastery returned all production back to within the abbey’s walls.  Their Abt 12 quad represents what Westvleteren 12 used to be before the abbey changed their yeast strain. St. Bernardus’ Christmas Ale is brewery’s Abt 12 offering, but gussied up with rich malt, dark dried fruit, fig, hints of anise, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar … basically a fruitcake. Fruitcake!

Heavy as lead
If it hits in the head!
Fruit cake!
It could kill you dead!
Fruit cake!
Yeah, fruit cake! 

Safety Is Priority Number One

One of the most fulfilling aspects of our craft beer and cider bar, bottle shop and restaurant is being a gathering place for the community. It’s a role we do not take for granted, and there are many responsibilities that come along with it — the health and safety of our guests and staff being at the top of the list. …

Face masks must be worn at all times.

Please maintain a social distance of 6 feet while waiting for take-out food and/or Campfire Crowler and Growler fills,

We’re continuing with two people at a time in the cooler with the line forming up the back stairs.

We’re open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day for now, but we hope to return to “before times” hours as soon as possible.

Hope to see you soon.
