Let's Declare War on Xmas!

It's that's time of year again, our White Eggnog Milk Stout War On Xmas is available at all of your favorite bottle shops.

This sweet, creamy, spicy homage to the greatest holiday drink of all ages, Egg Nog, goes perfect with all of your strange Holiday rituals. And, at a whopping 10.5% ABV, War on Xmas is the perfect coping mechanism for all of that time you have to spend with your republican family members during the holidays.

As a special gift to all you wonderful IBW cult members we are offering a very limited amount of Tequila Barrel Aged War on Xmas at a few of our accounts. This is truly War on Xmas in it's perfected form: the oak and tequilia offering just the right balance to the mellowed down sweetness of the core beer. During the 12 months this delight sat on oak, the spice and vanilla grew to love one another and exist in perfect harmony the way humanity has never seemed to do.
