Bristol’s Christmas Ale party

Apparently, when you merely tie for third, you aren’t invited to the very swanky and prestigious Best of the Springs party the Indy throws. That’s cool, Indy. That’s cool.

Besides, John Hazlehurst might have been there, and we’d have had to brawl.

We went to Bristol Brewing Co.’s Christmas Ale party, where they unveiled their latest brew. The Christmas Ale is, as you might suspect, delicious. We missed the Venetucci Pumpkin Ale thing, so we were sure to get there on time for this. Try the Christmas Ale. It’s dark, spicy, very smooth. They change the recipe every year, and this year’s was crafted by Bristol’s Bob Archibald. Well-done, Bob.

And while we were there, we had a great chat with Greg from Blue Sage catering, which provided the treats for the Bristol party. Amazing and fun food. If Blue Sage ever opens a sit-in restaurant, we’re there.

Bristol could use a little more seating. But that's OK. I'll just stand.

The catering by Blue Sage was outstanding. Tiny treats and meatballs with spaghetti squash. Different and fun food.
