But the Grinch (bu, buh, bum) who was drinking rice-laden macro swill, did not.
The Grinch hated this season, the whole winter specialty spiced beer season.
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It coulda been that pumpkin pie spiced latte cream ale,
Or maybe it was that vanilla extract laden American light lager,
Both of which, coated his palate and tasted kinda stale.
But I think the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his only experience with Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced beers, was a $4 six-pack masquerading as craft beer.

I'm of the age that I can not distinguish between -much less pick my favorite version- of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I can't even read the story with out the movie cadence. I can ,however, read the book without singing any Who song.
Santy Claus, why?
Why are you taking our Christmas Tree? Why?
Because it was used on last year's label and now we need to draw a new one for this year, that's why.
Anchor Brewing's Christmas Ale has a similar hold on me. I can't remember there ever not being an AB-Christmas Ale and I certainly can not pick my favorite year. I am just like living in the moment and I am looking forward to drinking this year's offering.
