Magnum of Anchor Our Special Ale or The Bruery 2 Turtle Doves

Which one should I bring for a Holiday party? Or if anyone has any one has any other suggestions please let me know. I'm already bringing a bottle of Santa's Little Helper.

  1. I've had the Anchor but not the turtle doves. The Anchor is an excellent beer. A couple others to consider: Pere Noel, St. Bernardus, Goudon Carolus and the Aleworks Yule Ale

      I actually went with the Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabza

        I had the Noel de Calabaza last night and damn it was good. I know it's too late, but i'd have brought the 2 turtle doves as it is holiday appropriate :-) That being said, I had it and a Sculpin on Christmas

    2. Anchor, if you can still find any. This year's is really good.

        this is the first Anchor Our Special Ale I've really liked in quite a while. They showed some restraint with the spices and I think it's quite well balanced and pretty drinkable. Plus the magnum bottle is beautiful
