The HandleBar, is ready to start your Christmas vacation off right as they’ll be holding their first “Beer Christmas” starting at 6PM on Thursday, December 23rd. To put some jingle in your stocking the fine folks at Six Row Brewing Company will be bringing a very special cask of Spiced Belgian Dubbel that contains cinnamon, vanilla and ginger.

Not only will there be a special cask, but each pint you purchase will earn you a raffle ticket for possibly winning some “gifts” wrapped under the tree. There will also be additional prizes given away from breweries such as Goose Island and Schlafly.

If you’re looking to avoid the Christmas ham, the Handlebar kitchen will still be serving up some awesome grub.  This sounds like a great excuse to get out of the house before you’re surrounded by family in that ugly Christmas sweater.
