Best Reason to Look Forward to Winter

Jolly Roger Christmas Ale

A few years ago, while Maritime Brewery was moving its operations in Ballard, the famous Jolly Roger Christmas Ale didn't get released on time. Drinkers got vicious. Maritime doesn't just put out a seasonal ale, it's created an event. For thousands of drinkers around Puget Sound, its high-octane warmer has become as much a part of the holidays as long underwear and SmartWool socks. It's an accomplishment for any microbrew to stick out among the thickening herd, and in the ranks of winter beers, Jolly Roger has no peers. CHRIS KORNELIS 1111 N.W. Ballard Way, 782-6181,
