It's a Pacific Standard tradition that, during the months of December and January, we stage an Iron Santa Challenge to encourage people to try our excellent selection of dark and winter seasonal beers. The challenge: drink a 16-ounce pint (or 12- or 8-ounce pour, depending on how we're serving a given beer) of six different winter beers in one day/night, and win:
--A free Pacific Standard t-shirt!
--OR a Pacific Standard growler, patch, cozy, and pint glass! (Yes, all four! We have a bunch of different varieties of pint glasses, including the new Sixpoint/Pacific Standard mashup pint glass.)
--AND everlasting glory!
The actual beers will change with our rotating tap selections, but will generally include quaffs like the Sierra Nevada Celebration, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial Stout, and so on. Starting today, December 1, ask your bartender if you're interested in taking the challenge, and they'll provide you with a checklist of beers to drink over the course of an evening. Oh, and pace yourself. We don't want any messes.
