Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, Caskers! In episode 36 of Tales From the Cask we bring you the 2013 Christmas Extravadanza!!

In addition to Aubrey and Joe, we’re joined by our producer and fifth Beatle, Darrell Darnell from Golden Spiral Media, with special audio bits from Tony Danza. We all share favorite Christmas memories, New Year’s resolutions, what we want for Christmas, our favorite holiday beverages, and much more!
We also answer some listener questions about holiday brews, respond to some Tweets about various listeners favorite beers, and share some news stories from the recent passing of Graham MacKay, the 500 year old German beer law, trading an alligator for a 12-pack, and a proposed Ohio law that could raise ABV up to 21 percent.
And what holiday special would be complete without singing?
