Pro tip: Never ask someone if they’re headed to an Ugly Sweater Party.
Believe it or not, there are people out there in the world who find every Christmas sweater to be the pinnacle of haute couture, and these people don’t need your judgement. It’s the season of joy and being nice to people. (Seriously. That’s what Christmas is all about. Remember?)
For the rest of us, we’re down to celebrate the beauty of the Ugly Sweater. And at CMBC’s Ugly Sweater Party on Wednesday, December 21, at 5pm, you’ll be able to join in the fun.
If your sweater’s got holly, we want you to deck the halls. If it’s got reindeer, on Dasher and Dancer! Santa? Snowmen? Awesome! Does it need batteries? Stock up for that bad boy! Does it have some sort of confusing scene marrying all of the great things about the season with a tree, a menorah, snowflakes, and Jesus? Don that masterpiece!
The ugliest sweater will win an ugly award and a $25 CMBC gift card. The first runner up gets the knowledge that they weren’t even ugly enough to win.
No sweater? No problem!
We’ll kick the night off with our Fireside Chat ‘round the firepit — unless Jack Frost is nipping at our noses — with ‘Twas the Night Beerfore Christmas, read by Mop Man, Hank, and Ryan.
Then the beers will be flowing all night, including the week’s One-Off: Peppermint King Porter Stomp. This redonkulous creation will be available in two kegs — one regular and one on Nitro. Sounds like twice the amount of fun, and it sounds like a mint chocolate chip beershake which is really all we want out of life right now.
In addition, we’ll have a special seasonal brewer’s select flight. You’ll be able to get your fill of the One Off: Peppermint King Porter Stomp, Mop Water, Crusty Barnacle, and Apple Pie — all in one shot. Sounds like the perfect holiday dessert.
So get that sweater out of the moth balls — or glue more on! — and swing down to the brewery on Wednesday to celebrate the season of joy.
