port-santas-helper

San Marcos, CA – St. Nick makes his way to the Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey Tasting Room for the 8th Annual release of Bourbon Barrel-aged Santa’s Little Helper (Port Brewing’s Imperial Stout) and a Christmas in July celebration to benefit The Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation on Saturday, July 23rd, 2016.

This year, Christmas in July will be free admission, but if you’re a more nice than naughty and bring a toy (valued at $15 or more) for Toys for Tots, you’ll receive a wristband for 5 tasters (which will include specialties). If you forget a toy, you can donate $15 to receive the wristband as well with proceeds to benefit Toys for Tots.

The Port Brewing and Lost Abbey “Giving Tree” will also be making an appearance, for an extra donation to Toys for Tots, you’ll receive a gift from the tree. Gifts can include rare bottles, Port Brewing / Lost Abbey gear, tickets to our legendary Barrel Night during San Diego Beer Week as well as other goodies. Giving Tree tickets go on-sale Thursday, June 30th at noon at shop.lostabbey.com.

All of The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing’s full core lineup of beers will be available, plus a few specialty taps will be available (more info to come). Besides the fat man in the red suit (who will be available for pictures throughout the day), we’ll also be celebrating 8 years of releasing a Bourbon barrel-aged version of our Imperial Stout, Santa’s Little Helper. A robust beer with tones of sweet malt, dark cocoa and notes of deep bourbon, Santa’s Little Helper is the perfect accompaniment to fruit cake during a California Christmas in July.
