Impulse Buys

We went out beer shopping this weekend, with one mission in mind, to pick up some Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale. I've read that it's showing up in Northern VA, so I hoped we'd find it here as well. The first store we tried had only the 1.5 liter magnum size bottles, but no standard six packs. The second stop was a bust as well. However, there are lots of holiday beers showing up now, and we didn't make it out of either shop without some impulse purchases.

As pictured below, we picked up Heavy Seas Winter Storm, New Belgium 1554 Black Ale, New Belgium Snow Day Winter Ale, and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. Those aren't too shabby as consolation prizes I'd say!

That should do until next time. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.


  1. 1554 is one of my all-time favorite beers.

  2. I always enjoyed it when I traveled to Denver. When I saw it here, I couldn't resist.

  3. We've actually got both of the New Belgiums on your list there in the fridge. "Build your own six-pack" is a wonderful wonderful thing.
