12 Beers of Christmas: Ranking Every Beer in the Shiner Home for the Holidays Variety Pack

Hold the partridge in a pear tree — crack open a cold one with your true love instead.

If you're looking to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas this year but want to change things up from the traditional advent calendar, then we've got a brilliant alternative: Shiner Home for the Holidays Variety Pack. It's the perfect early Christmas gift for any beer lover. The box is packed with 12 festive flavors — one for each day of Christmas — including Candied Pecan, Frost and Holiday Cheer.

Shiner Beer, hailing from the Shiner, Texas-based Spoetzl Brewery, is best known for its bock. But over the years, they've released a variety of special brews ranging from light to dark. And a dozen of their fan favorites have made a triumphant return for the holiday collection, which can be purchased in either a 12 or 24-pack.

Mixing and matching craft beers into a custom six-pack has become a go-to way for beer lovers to sample a wide variety of options. While Shiner may be larger than what some would consider a genuine craft brewery, they offer that craft brewery taste and feel with this special and (very) limited edition pack.

In the spirit of the season, I decided to sample each of Shiner's yuletide brews for myself and assign them a ranking (I know, I know, it's a tough job — but somebody's got to do it).

Snag a Shiner Home for the Holidays Variety Pack at H-E-B, Spec's, Total Wine, and other stores.
