Where to Drink Christmas Night
Looking to carry your holiday celebration into the wee hours? Most restaurants and restaurant-bars around town close their doors on Christmas Day, but that's no reason to stay in, Mr. Grinch. Plenty of bars will welcome you with open arms, ready to add some jingle to your belly.
First and foremost, try the Ginger Man. Among the hordes of holiday beers available there right now are the Sam Adams Winter Lager, the tasty Belgian Barbar Winter Bock, Anchor Steam Christmas Ale, Breckinridge Brewery's Christmas Ale, and the ever popular St. Arnold's Christmas Ale. If low-key, rad bars aren't your style, Kenneally's and Little Woodrow's will let you in starting at 4 p.m. Under the Volcano, Brian O'Neill's, Front Porch Pub and Porch Swing Pub open at 7 p.m. And Pearl Bar opens at 8 p.m. This list is certainly not crazy extensive -- What other fine, beer-giving establishments are open tonight?
