You must've been extra good this year because you're getting some exciting stuff in our December's Beer Club. In our last Beer Club for 2014, we are saying "Thank You" in the best way we know how: by stuffing this box full of some of our favorites. I'm too stoked about the fact that you're getting BREWFIST this month to care about spoiling the surprise. That's right, Brewfist is here at The Hawk.

I first discovered northern-Italy's Brewfist on a trip to Rome a few years ago. I knew of the rumblings of great craft beer in Italy but upon my first sip of Brewfist's Simcoe-Citra-Columbus-hopped Spaceman IPA, I was a total convert. Since you were such good boys and girls this year, we're happy to pop in the Spaceman into both the Normal strength and Strong cases.

Both the Normal and Strong-Light cases will also see Brewfist's fantastic Low Gravity saison, while the Strong case will also find the Space Frontier IPA--another one of my favorites--as well as the Brewfist Spaghetti

Now aren't you glad you were so good this year? (Well, it's not like we wouldn't have given it to you anyway, but play along, mmmkay?)

I wouldn't be making all of these Christmas references if you weren't also getting some really great Christmas seasonal beers this month. Anchor Christmas Ale, Ilkley Mary Christmas, and Delirium Christmas are some of the beery cheer that you'll find in the Normal strength case. Those of you who prefer the Strong case will be getting rosy cheeks thanks to the likes of Delirium Christmas, Bush Noël, and Slaapmutske Christmas, among others.

If you find yourself trembling with excitement waiting for the big day when you'll get everything you wanted--the day Beer Hawk's Beer Club arrives, of course--wait until you get a load of this: The Normal and Strong cases are also getting Left Hand's Fade to Black Volume 1. Yessir (and ma'am), this beautiful Foreign Extra Stout is that extra special treat that we're very excited to include in the month's Beer Club. (But shhhh--it's only for our Beer Club members.)

Of course this month's 15 beers will be rounded out with some of our other favorites but I think I've already told you too much. You'll just have to wait for the day when the big man in the delivery truck comes. Cheers and Hoppy Christmas!
