itap.jpgI don’t always have much (or any) Christmas spirit. December is just not one of my favorite months. One of the things that annoys me the most is just how damned early it gets dark. It’s not much fun to wake up in the dark and come home from work in the dark.

But dark isn’t always bad.  Take for instance the iTAP Nightmare Before Christmas.  Next Saturday, December 15th the International Tap House (both locations) will be putting on a bunch of big, rare beers, and a bunch of dark beers to boot. Here’s a list of what to expect:
