Holiday 2016 Brew News

Tomme Arthur, owner of The Lost Abbey & Port Brewing Co. and Jon Defibaugh, brewmaster of Evil Genius Beer Co.

In the months ahead, Pennsylvania will be  wrapped in a cocoon of bone-chilling winter weather, but with that comes the holidays and the opportunity to gather with friends and family around a table filled with good food and celebratory libations.

Tomme Arthur and Jon Defibaugh took us Behind The Suds to discuss the brews that grace their holiday get-togethers.


“I either spend the holidays at home in San Diego or in Palm Desert with my wife’s family. On our holiday table you’ll find a smattering of things. Our Avant Garde is versatile enough for ham and turkey, but if it’s steak we’re having, I usually go for wine.” However, Arthur admits that his favorite holiday splurge  is “really bad cheese  and bean dip with corn tortilla chips washed down with a fresh IPA.”


jon“Great Lakes produces some of the cleanest, most refined beers in the country, and their Christmas Ale has long been one of my favorites.
It’s never over-the top with the spicing, and it’s the perfect bottle to split with someone while having a rich dessert. My wife makes a ‘mean’ vegan Black  Forest cake with cherries that pairs perfectly with it.”
