Normally by this time of year, I’m bouncing around like an excited elf, figuring out presents for my loved ones. But, let’s face it — this year is not like other years.

Instead of traditional gifts, I’m giving something that’ll actually spread some much-needed cheer. Something with across-the-board 4+ scores on both Untappd and Tavour!

The annual favorite I’m giving is Prairie Artisan Ales’ Christmas Bomb Imperial Stout!

It’s a big, robust sipper with a relaxing 13% ABV, aged on coffee, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chili peppers. And, for even more joy-giving flavor, the brewers added a bevy of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg holiday spices!

With all these flavorful explosions, its name makes total sense — it’s a Christmas Bomb for the palate! Each sip is like diving into a homemade Mexican hot chocolate and emerging with bites of freshly-baked Christmas cookies.

If you’re feeling extra generous, you could grab a couple extra bottles as stocking stuffers. Or, you could just load up the beer fridge for yourself. You’ve earned at least a few boozy breaks this winter.
