During the Christmas Break, Mr. and I went to the States to check out some holiday light displays. We drove through various neighbourhoods in the Seattle area and were amazed by how the houses came together to put on some fabulous displays.

The highlight of our trip was visiting the Lights of Christmas in Stanwood, at the Warm Beach Camp. With more than one million Christmas lights spread over 15 acres, this is known to be the largest holiday light display in the Pacific Northwest. I’m always fascinated by lights, the more the merrier, so I wasn’t going to miss it.

The Lights of Christmas

And it didn’t disappoint. There were 6 themed areas, each with its own unique lights. Some of my favourites include the light tunnels, a light maze (although not as elaborate as what Enchant offered here in Vancouver), the Fireball Tree (that looks like fireworks itself), the Cascade mountains, Christmas Tree Island, the angels, the snow-capped mountain, and the waterfall.

And the draw is: Red Racer Fly By Night Porter

Here we are! The final beer of the box, a Porter from Central City. Not their well-known bourbon barrel imperial porter though, a new and different one. So how does it stack up? Compared to the imperial – not well. But on its own, not bad. Continue Reading »

And the draw is: Red Racer Wee Heavy

I review this beer with a heavy heart. I don’t really like just coming out and saying something is bad, but this was bad. The dark brown pour and fluffy head gave me hope, but there was something off with the smell. Continue Reading »

And the draw is: Parallel 49 Rock The Bells Cranberry Sour

This beer opened the advent calendar last year, and I said something along the lines of “I would gladly drink (it) again”. Well, here’s my chance, and yes, I am glad. Continue Reading »

And the draw is: Red Racer Jitter Buzz

Today we have Jitter Buzz, an Imperial Coffee Stout, made with Cold-pressed organic espresso, courtesy of Bean Around The World.

I have a secret; I’m not a coffee fan. I’m a tea guy through and through. Really, the only time I drink coffee is when it’s in the form of a latte or something along those lines. Continue Reading »

And the draw is: Parallel 49 Filthy Dirty Grapefruit IPA

Oh hello, what do we have here? Not just P49’s IPA, Filthy Dirty, but a blend between Filthy Dirty and Tricycle! This seems like it could be pretty cool so let’s dive in. Continue Reading »
