Most of us can't sing unless we've had a couple of pints, which means that the Fort Collins-area brewers who got together to sing this jingle at Horse & Dragon Brewing may have had a couple. The singing Christmas card was organized by the Colorado Brewers Festival and the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association. James Yearling, beer coordinator for the groups, led the choir. Cheers and happy holidays.
