A Six-Pack of the Finest Local Seasonal AlesIt’s always a pleasure to dip into the latest seasonals from New York’s many great breweries... Allow us to recommend the following beers, in aid of maxium cheer: Blue Point’s Winter Ale, the Sixpoint Diesel (an IPA stout?), Brooklyn Winter Ale, Ommegang’s Adoration Special Winter Ale, Southern Tier’s Old Man Winter Ale, and Smuttynose’s Winter Ale.
Brooklyn Pint Glasses
All households should have at least six pint glasses in which to pour beer for guests—we’re not savages, right? Adam Suerte’s Brooklyn pint glasses might be a little cheesy, adorned as they are by the borough’s landmarks, but that’s a small price to pay to be drinking out of a glass upon which is pictured the Brooklyn Detention Center.

A Big-Ass Bottle of Breuckelen Distilling’s Rye 77 Whiskey
Because one of the only things that gets us through Christmas Eve is a good rye and ginger.
You know where everybody knows your name? At your house! Red Hook’s Fort Standard design studio makes a beautiful, beautiful stool, an ideal companion for alone time, drinking rye and ginger (because it’s impossible to fall asleep on).
