2010 Holiday Ale Festival Beer List with Descriptions

Here is the list for the Holiday Ale Festival with descriptions as well as beer stats that Chris Crabb of the Holiday Ale Festival sent to beer bloggers  and other media type folks. I've been playing around with publishing google docs as a way to blog more. I apologize if this looks kind of weird.

Tomorrow afternoon there is a media preview that I am very much looking forward to attending! I'll let you know what my picks are this year.

The HAF just published this list with distributions on their site here. It's much easier to read too.

2010 Holiday Ale Festival Beer List

The list is up for Holiday Ale Festival and it's only a month away! This list is straight from their website with some changes in the spacing. There are a few typos like the of 2 beers as Holiday Ale for the brewery. I did put a question mark on those. The HAF is becoming one of my favorite festivals of the year and I’m once again looking forward to this event! 
I'll look over this list and post about a few I'm itching to try.
