Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:

Thanksgiving feast is almost here,

Time to plan your meal.

Turkey pairs with lots of beer,

In-laws require Christmas Ale.

Saint Arnold and Smashburgers

A hamburger beer dinner? Oh, yes! Except you can do this one every day yourself.

Beginning today, Smashburger will have their hamburgers and chicken sandwiches paired with one of our beers. How was this put together? A month ago, we sat down with Tom Ryan, founder of Smashburger, with all of our beers on the table and all of his burgers. Then we began the very difficult work of eating the burgers and drinking the beer. Favorites became pretty clear, including some pairings that we found surprising.

Today, Smashburger will begin putting the recommended pairings on their menus at their stores around Houston. Here is a link to all of the participating restaurants.

Also, follow this link to a Smashburger coupon that you can use while seeing what you think about the pairings we came up with. All in a day’s work.

Sailing Santa is Making a Brief Return

On Monday November 19

Sailing Santa began its life several years ago when people requested that we blend half a pint of Elissa IPA with half a pint of Christmas Ale. Last year, we introduced a bottled version by filtering half a batch of Elissa IPA and blending it in the bright beer tank with half a batch of Christmas Ale.

This year, Sailing Santa is returning with a slight tweak. We started by blending the Elissa IPA and Christmas Ale wort pre-fermentation. Then we added just a pinch of cinnamon. Or what a pinch would be when talking about 3,000 gallons. The result is a spiced Sailing Santa that is great to drink by itself but also an amazing beer to pair with foods, especially holiday recipes. There is a very limited number of 22 oz bottles of this year’s Sailing Santa being released to grocery and liquor stores only.

Sailing Santa will be released this Monday, November 19 and will show up in a limited number of stores throughout the week. We don’t expect it to last very long. Other cities will have varying release dates for this beer.
