Draft Beer Update 

This week's Beer Season beer of the week, Shiner Holiday Cheer, replaced Great Lakes Christmas Ale. I have had several bottles of this one and I LOVE IT. It is a dunkelweizen with peaches and roasted pecans. A damn tasty beer. That Great Lakes Xmas was a winner too; we have another keg which should get tapped this week.
