This traditional Christmas carol is near and dear to my heart. I liked the song well before high school and so I was super stoked when, as a mediocre first chair saxophonist, I got to play the main melody solo in my high school concert band.
I'm going the route of "What Child is This?" for this beer pairing and I found a wonderful beer that will warm you from the inside out, on these cold December nights. A 9.5% Tripel aged for three months with sour cherries and raspberries.
This beer will put you in a Ray Charles kinda mood. His version of this song is my favorite vocal rendition. Unfortunately, Ray has some good internet monitors and there are no free versions of this so you will have to by the full album to hear his version. There are other great songs on this album, too, so you won't be disappointed.
