Santa needs beer too

This weekend, Fairfield Craft Ales will be open during its regular hours: 5-9 pm Thursday and Friday; 1-9 pm Saturday; and 1-6 pm Sunday. Be sure to come in for Resilience Night on Thursday, our Ugly Sweater Party with the SWAT food truck on Friday, and to get your growler fills by Sunday at 6 pm, so you can treat Santa to some brews on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This classic poem explains why he really needs it:

‘Twas the night before Christmas, I needed a beer
Not tomorrow or the next day, but right now and right here
I sat in my chair by the chimney and stared
In hopes that a beer would soon pop out of there
The children were finally asleep in their beds
Their whining and fighting had done a job on my head
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
Some dude was out there—sure, I’m fat but he’s fatter
He had a cool sleigh and a bunch of small deer
I ran out to see if in his sack was some beer
I’d run through my supply just a few days before
I explained to the man who brought booze through my door
We sat and we drank, and we drank drank drank drank
Until both our breaths really started to stank
He told me his travels were kind of a bother
I complained about work and about being a father
Then we had a few laughs and felt a lot better
He said it was time to get back to being a sledder
And laying a finger to the side of his nose
He chugged one more and up the chimney he rose
But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
Merry Christmas beer buddy, you made my night!
