You Won’t Believe The Holiday Beer Release at Boatyard in Kalamazoo
Breweries are known to release special brews for the holidays. Something that hints of Christmas cookies or peppermint mocha. But Boatyard has outdone themselves this year with The Most Extensive Christmas Beer Release Party on the Planet! There's something for every beer lover's palate. They're really putting the spirit in the season. Pun intended. Boatyard did say:
Be prepared….there are many more in production…we still have a few weeks to go!
With a list like this, "there are many more in production" reads more like a threat to your liver than a promise.
