Last year, I tracked down Boulevard’s Nut Cracker Ale for the first time, and found it to be an ideal beer to keep around the house in the days of snow, holidays and abundant food needing to be napped away.
This year, I found it did the job again. It’s not a big beer. Not extreme. Not huge. It’s a good beer. Well-rounded. Subtley spiced. A pleasure to accompany the holiday season.
After a Christmas meal at Mother-in-law’s, we all slothed around watching movie after movie. Nap after nap. Quiet times with family. And this beer just hung around, tasting right for the circumstances.
