Max's Christmas Beer Social Reminder

I won't be there, but enjoy it it you can -- responsibly. Having never attended a Tuesday Beer Social at Max's I can't help as far as explanation, but have a gander at Tuesday night's Christmas Beer Social final list of items on cask, draft and bottle via Beer in Baltimore:

Weyerbacher Winter
Heavy Seas Winter Storm
Whitemarsh Winter Sotice
Whitemarsh Winter Soltice
Southern Tier Chockalt
Troegs Mad Elf 2007
Troegs Mad Elf 2008
Samichlaus Helles
Scaldis Noel
Barbar Winter Bok
Seirra Nevada Celebration
Birra Natale
Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux
la Rulles Cuvee
Corsendonk Christmas
St Bernardus Christmas
Haandbryggeriet Nissefar
Del Ducato Krampus
Wintercoat Yule Ol
Ridgeway Crimanlly Bad Elf
Ridgeway Insanely Bad Elf
Anchor Christmas Ale
Mikkeller Not just Another Wit
Struise Tseejes
Thrieiz Noel
Geants Noel De Geants
De Ranke Pere Noel

Be sure to look up the unfamiliar items of the bunch via Google. I prefer the following method:

"struise tseejes Beer Advocate"

Sometimes Beer Advocate won't let you see a review directly through their site without your having an account/handle, but there's a lazy man's back door by searching via Google that usually brings up the beer you're interested in. From there you can get a feel for the style, what else is made by the brewery, alcohol content and others' reviews for better or worse.
