Wow, pizzaman, I wish you lived near me. I'd be right over with my hand/glass out. I guess that's the true meaning of Christmas.
Happy holidays everyone

I recently scored a small fridge (similar to the Sanyos people convert all the time) for free. For Christmas I am giving it to my brother along with a loan of a spare 5# CO2 tank and regulator and a keg of cream ale. This way I can quit bottling stuff for him all the time. I wish I could convince him to brew.

I give away everything I have in bottles. This is not so much though. I keg my brew, filling only a few bottles from most batches.

Gave away 162 bottles (27 6 packs) and 2 kegs, or about 25 gallons. Next year I'll probably get an earlier start (yeah right!) and up the quantity a little. Most people really enjoy it.

It is my job to bring beer to the Listermann family Xmas party. This year I brought two half barrels of the same batch. One was fermented with Cooper's yeast and served from a beer engine and the other was Fermented with Superior Lager yeast and served from a Prohibition era faucet. I would guess that between the two, a half barrel was consumed. I have a very large family.

As usual, I gave 750ml bottles of wine to my aunts and uncles and 375 ml to my cousins.

You guys are all crazy! :-)

I think I gave away about 25 bottles, and even that made a painful dent in my stash :-)

Bottled five gallons of IPA and gave away to family and friends; (bottles sent from NC to San Diego got good reviews on X-mas calls today). X-mas is probably one of the few times I will bottle a batch...making the labels is cool.

Every year, I am also requested to (please) bring a corny of brew to our neighborhood NY Eve part...this year it will be a Rogue Golden ale. Last year's keg of O-fest blew in about an hour.

Whatever people drink when I am drinking with them. This year I have been sharing quite a bit of Dunkel Wiezen and a Rye IPA. I think me and 2 of my neighbors pretty much killed a keg of the Rye IPA on Xmas eve eve.

I managed to get off fairly light this year...a growler, a sixer, 5 "bombers", 3 750mL of mead, a case of wine and a Corny keg. I hope Santa enjoys them!
