Triple Rock's Holiday Ale and Party: A Festivus for Beer Drinkers

Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2011 at 12:00 PM


It's the most wonderful time of the year! Festivus is upon us. It's a time to gather around the aluminum Festivus pole, air your grievances, and -- thanks to Triple Rock Brewery, drink some strong beer.

Seinfeld fans know that the traditional Festivus holiday culminates in the "Feats of Strength," when the head of the household is wrestled to the floor. Triple Rock's tests of strength, however, will require Herculean liver power. On Dec. 23, revelers will face four strong beers brewed to celebrate the holiday alongside a special Festivus ale. Clocking in above 8 percent ABV, these special selections include a wheat wine, scotch ale, imperial red ale, and wood-aged imperial stout.

For optimal strength training, the brews are being rolled out every couple weeks leading up to the event. As of today, Truth Serum Wheat Wine and Reindeer Imperial Red are flowing from the taps.

In order to complete the feats and emerge victorious on the big night, Triple Rock warns that you must consume all four beers during the event and "complete a few other acts of strength." If you're lucky, this may entail Greco-Roman wrestling of some sort. Wake up the next morning without a hangover, and it'll be a true Festivus miracle.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
