We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

Meaning “with the best wishes,” Dupont’s limited-run holiday beer was meant to be a thank-you to their loyal fans—and what a thank-you it is! Combining the prickly carbonation and zesty funk of a saison with the musty grains and assertive alcohol of a tripel, this is a beer that demands your attention. Some dried fruits mill about on the farm—pears, peaches and a touch of faint plum—but mostly it’s high-octane spring days and horse blankets soaked in booze, with just enough spice to add some intrigue. This saison on steroids is a must try for anyone who enjoys Belgian beers. Try it at The Belgian Café—and the 2012 vintage at Monk’s.
