'Tis the Season..........

Ahhhhhh... the holidays!! So much to do and so little time. The shopping, the decorationg, the traffic at the mall. The snow and ice and the bitter cold. How can we handle it all??
Perhaps with a beer from Flossmoor Station!

This time of year everyone is asking what is going on at the brewery and what is your Christmas beer? Well, here's a list of events and special beers coming up this month that may just entice you to drop on by after a long day of shopping/working/driving/lying on the couch.

OK, we've got the dates, but what TIME are you putting up each barrel of the "12 Days of Christmas" Ale? (Or as I re-dubbed it on RB, the "Nightmare Before Christmas" Ale!)
