Frambozen is coming...

There's a chill gathering in the air, maybe snow is threatening, and the turkeys are starting to head to the place that turns them from flapping birds to eating birds.  

It was just the other night. I was watching the World Series (Go Cards!), and I saw a commercial for Best Buy during a game break. It was a Christmas themed ad, telling us how we all can go to Best Buy and purchase all the gifts we need for our loved ones. It was the first holiday themed ad of the year (that I saw, and admittedly, I only watch baseball, and reruns of Fall Guy). That got me thinking though, if Christmas ads are hitting the TV, then my favorite beer is just around the corner... 

That's right! It's true! Frambozen is coming! I haven't tasted it yet, nor seen it, nor, really, heard much about it for the year (the picture, to the right, is from last year). I do know that a short run went through the bottling line today!!!! And that, paired with the tell-tale Christmas TV ad, means the greatest get-together-and-eat-a-giant-meal-with-your-friends beer is just a few weeks from hitting the shelves. 

Some info: Frambozen is our holiday seasonal. A raspberry brown that pairs so well with big meals we only put it out once a year, and for a short time, and generally in time for Thanksgiving. This is due to the party atmosphere and familial togetherness it creates. These feelings of Frambozen fun are too strong for the world to get anything done. We would all spend so much time in the kitchen, and around the table, that real-life-work would go un-done, trash could go un-taken out, and blogs would go un-updated. It is my favorite beer, during my favorite time of year, and I am happy we all get to enjoy it again soon... 

I will update you with details as they become available.


Till Wednesday dear friends...
