Tis The Season for Traditions

Posted December 22, 2010 By GLBeer Snob

The holidays are a time to share special traditions with your loved ones and friends. Children make Christmas cookies to leave for Santa. Families feast on a special meal that is always prepared, or maybe it’s the only time of year a group of old friends can get together and reminisce about the good ole days.

Today is a beertastic day at Great Lakes Brewing Company – our first official “Ugly Christmas Sweater Day.” Employees purchased or borrowed the ugliest Christmas sweaters they could find and believe me, these sweaters are truly shocking. A wide range of fur, glitter and jingle bells are prancing through the office today, and a few sweaters are re-appearing after sitting in Mom's closet since 1987. We will post plenty of pictures on our Facebook page to share with all of our Great Lakes fans.

There are two very special sweaters being worn today that were purchased by Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Molly Rothgery – a dear friend to us all who we lost tragically this year. We wish she was here today to celebrate the season.  Even though she is not here with us today, she is definitely somewhere sporting the most fabulous bedazzled Christmas sweater ever made.

Please share your favorite holiday traditions with us - we're sure some involve the beloved Christmas Ale, while others center on the infamous fruitcake recipe passed down from generations.  Regardless, let's hear those stories!

The staff at Great Lakes Brewing Company wishes you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
