Cheers and holiday beers, everyone! In honor of sharing with family, we're kicking off our Christmas (eve) episode with a collaboration from Firestone Walker and Topa Topa Brewing: Hazy Pale Ale. Shannon joins the show in place of Dan and talks about how great holiday traffic is while Greg talks about a Friendsmas party with friends and brewing a new beer. We also discuss shipping packages for the holidays. In Sports Talk: the Seahawks are friends with Marshawn Lynch again, the Ravens are taking a page out of the Patriots cheating book, Eli Manning & Daniel Jones party it up, Greg Olsen rips the Panthers, Rich Hill and his wife are arrested, the Jazz pick up Clarkson, and more. Our Bullpen Beer is Santa's on the Juice New England IPA from Wild Barrel Brewing. Thanks to @ally.in.cally for getting that to us! In Booze News: New Belgium Employees approve the sale to Kirin, Ladyface Ale Companie has been sold, Lattitude 33 sells their production facility, and Anheuser Busch is releasing a CBD tea. We also run down 9 facts about Krampus!
