Capone’s offers 12 Ales of Christmas

You know the holidays are here when Rudolph is back on TV and the 12 Ales of Christmas returns to Capone’s. As of this afternoon, some 40 tickets still were left for the 19th annual celebration at the original Capone’s in Coeur d’Alene this Saturday at 6:30. The star attractions again are the titular dozen seasonal beers – from familiar favorites such as Jubelale, Snow Cap and Celebration, to the less routine likes of Pelican’s Bad Santa and Diamond Knot’s Ho!Ho!, to locals including Twelve Strings of Winter and Slate Creek’s Windburn Winter Imperial Red. Those attending again get 7-ounce pours of each, and a scorecard to rate them. “They always get more interesting the farther you get into it,” Capone’s manager Tyler Geigle says of the customer comments.

Question: Is this an event that would interest you?
