Boxing Day is observed annually on Dec. 26 in the United Kingdom and other European countries that dates back to the days of Queen Victoria, though some historians trace its origins back much further—to medieval times. Today, it’s largely an extension of the Christmas holiday and a big day for sporting events, shopping, and, to Peaks and Pints, craft beer. In the event you didn’t get enough craft beer on Christmas Day, you’ll want to get in on Peaks and Pints New Beer In Stock 12.26.19.

DuClaw Brewing

From the time he set foot on a college campus, Dave Benfield was expected to go into the family business as an electrical contractor.
