Beer: Mommy Kissing Santa Claus by Broadhead Brewing Company

Style: Stout – Other

ABV: 5.5%

Pairing: A “Holiday” Playlist

About the Beer: Candy cane lovers rejoice! It might not pair well with a steak but it’s not supposed to. I had it with chocolate and it paired well. They currently have it at the brewery and I suggest you add it to your beer advent calendar.

It is however a challenging beer for the novice. My playlist for MKSC reflects that. You won’t find these songs in your everyday holiday playlist just like you won’t find this beer in your typical beer fridge.

The Music:

Jim Bryson “Mary New Year’s Eve”

Starting off with this sweet song by #Ottband Jim Bryson. A reflection on how much we consume this time of year.

Tom Waits “Christmas Card to a Hooker in Minneapolis”

I like how his Christmas story is so much different than mine…

Julie Doiron “Heavy Snow”

My formative years were spent in the same region as Julie Doiron in New Brunswick. She knows about heavy snow.

Clarence Carter “Back Door Santa”

Yeah santa, please come through my back door. It’s a lot easier!

James Brown “Hey America”

Hey!!!!!! If you want your dose of James Brown HEYS!, look no further.

Dana Dane “Dana Dane Is Coming to Town”

Hip hop has come a long way since Dada Dane came to town.

De La Soul – “Millie Pulled a Pistol on Santa” or The Roots “Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa”

Take your pick! Same song, different vibes…

Beck – “Little Drum Machine Boy”

When Beck wrote good songs… Not saying this one is…

Fucked Up “David Christmas”

He’s and angry elf…

El Vez “Feliz Navidad”

Also known as the Mexican Elvis, El Vez performs a spirited version of Feliz Navidad.

Moar Treeverb “PS Xmas Dood”

My Fav on this list… #OttBand

The Ramones “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)”

How many of us dread the family business of the holidays?

Pointed Sticks “Power Pop Santa”

Power pop kids the same as a hipster?

The Visit “Offering”

I want to leave you with a gift. An “offering” if your will. This #OttBand is one to watch for. The Offering is not like anything I have heard before. Enjoy and happy Holidays!
