Beer and Cheer: Celebration Ale

Celebration Ale
Sierra Nevada
This is a beer that I sometimes dream about during the summer months; it's the only thing that makes me look forward to cool weather. It's also the first beer I think of when I consider the holidays -- and the first one I buy. Although it differs from most holiday brews because it brags an uber-hopped California-style flavor rather than dark malts and spices, Celebration Ale sets the standard. It is strong, it is festive and it is always fantastic. - Jonathan Shikes

Craft breweries in Colorado and around the country make seasonal beers all year round, but the best of the best come out in the final three months. To see reviews of my other favorites, check out our Booze News blog archive.
