Twas the night before Christmas, in Prince William's domain, not a creature was stirring, not even a crane. The beer taps were set by the bar with great care, in hopes that good cheer soon would be shared. The brewers were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of malts danced in their heads. And my friends with their stouts, and I with my ales, had just settled down for seasonal tales.

Discover the magic of the season with Prince William County's limited-time seasonal brews on our Stein's, Vines, and Moonshine trail. From spiced ales to cozy stouts, savor the essence of winter in every sip. There might even be a beer brewed for a certain elf to enjoy!
