The 12 Beers of Christmas is back again this year. No, not the Bob and Doug McKenzie song from the 80s, but a chance for Seattle area beer lovers to enjoy some tasty holiday libations and win some cool stuff, including the grand prize of a two-night getaway package to Leavenworth for four people. All you need to do to enter is visit four different Seattle bars between December 1 and December 12 to enjoy some great holiday beers from breweries like Silver City Brewing (blog sponsor), Fremont Brewing, Diamond Knot Brewing, 21st Amendment Brewing, and others.

The program is put together each year by Great Artisan Beverage Company, which distributes beer from the fine breweries involved. Complete details below, from Great Artisan.

Locations:

Naked City Brewery & Taproom in Greenwood – featuring winter brews from Victory Brewing (Downingtown, PA), Schooner Exact (Seattle, WA) and Silver City (Bremerton, WA)

Beveridge Place Pub (blog sponsor) in West Seattle – featuring winter brews from Dick’s Brewing (Centralia, WA), Diamond Knot Craft Brewing (Mukilteo, WA) and Oakshire Brewing Co (Eugene, OR)

The Pine Box on Capitol Hill – featuring winter beer from Fremont Brewing (Seattle, WA), 21st Amendment Brewery (San Francisco, CA) and Laurelwood Brewpub (Portland, OR)

The Beer Authority in Lake City – featuring the winter brews from Eel River Brewing (Fortuna, CA), Big Sky Brewery (Missoula, MT), and No-Li Brewhouse (Spokane, WA).

The Deal:

The format follows last year’s, as each location will feature all three of their chosen brews on tap for the duration of the tour, December 1st through 12th. Patrons can pick up their official 12 Beers punch card (free of charge) at any of the four locations at any time, and start the tour. Upon completion of all 12 Beers, participants simply turn the completed punch card in at any of the four locations BEFORE 4:00pm on December 12th. All completed punch cards will be collected at this time, and taken to the Pine Box for the grand finale party and raffle beginning at roughly 7:00pm on December 12th.

The grand prize once again is a two-night stay for four adults in a luxurious two bedroom condo in the Leavenworth village, with lift tickets for nearby Stevens Pass, and some great craft beer to enjoy! Additional brewery-related prizes will be raffled off as well, and winners MUST BE PRESENT to accept their prize!

Check each locations’ social media and website for exact details and the dates of individual brewery promotions, which typically include special beer samplings, brewer appearances, vertical tastings, casks, firkins, and other special one-off beer rarities!
