It's the most wonderful time of the year...the time where we're celebrating one Fort Collins brewery every day in December! Welcome to the 25 Beers of Christmas.

To start us off on the first day of Beer-mas, we're highlighting the Snowbank Brewing Company and their updated winter release, Snow Juice, a New England IPA, double dry hopped with Simcoe hops.

This release means a lot to owner and head brewer Dave, who said,

"My dog, who was named Simcoe, after the hop, recently passed away and this beer is my way of honoring him."

I'm not crying, you're crying.

Simcoe was a vital character in the brewery, and the new release tells beer drinkers just how important he was to everyone there. The can reads:
This very special beer is an homage to a best friend who was always there on brew days, employee of the month (every month), and our official taproom greeter.
You can grab this beer in four-pack cans in the Snowbank taproom only, so make sure you grab yours soon and cheers to Simcoe.
