It’s Christmas Eve and here we are at the end of our advent/beer-vent calendar opening our final beer and in this case it seems appropriate that it is Baby Maker (8.5% ABV / 80 IBU) a Double IPA from Triple C Brewing in Charlotte. A Double IPA is a great want to end the list and Baby Maker well – it kinda sums up the holiday and the year we’ve had here at 919raleigh. Entire list of beers below and while I enjoyed both new beers and old favorites one things is certain – North Carolina has great breweries and beers. Merry Christmas!

Ready to take it to the next level? This Double IPA is fueled by hop flavor and aroma with enough bitterness to back the big malt body. Enjoy responsibly, this one’s aptly named.
