A Community Christmas

Christmas is coming early to Community Pint, thanks to Firestone Walker.

The California brewery is taking over 10 of the Spokane craft beer bar’s taps for a Christmas party Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m., along with two selections each from Fremont and Georgetown.

The “green” beers in the Firestone lineup include:

– The STiVO Keller Pils collaboration with Russian River.

– DBA (Double Barrel Ale), a cask-fermented English-style pale.

– The flagship Union Jack IPA.

– The latest in the Luponic Distortion series of IPAs using experimental hops, the new No. 008.

– Mocha Merlin coffee oatmeal stout.

There also are five more exclusive “red” selections:

– The Sour Opal interpretation of a traditional Belgian gueuze.

– Krieky Bones sour cherry Flanders-style red.

– Velvet Merkin bourbon barrel-aged oatmeal stout.

– The barrel-aged Pacific Gravity Weizenbock strong wheat beer.

– This year’s XXI Anniversary Ale barrel-aged blend.

Along with full pours, three different four-ounce taster packages will be available: Rudolph (four green pours, two red) for $14, Dasher (six green, four red) for $24 and Blitzen (nine green, five red) for $30. That will continue through Sunday, as supplies last.

Also look for Georgetown’s Chardell chocolate coffee stout and Hansen Brothers imperial black IPA, plus Fremont’s Winter Ale and Lush IPA.
