The only thing that could be better than the music being played during this season would be those same songs with a beery holiday tilt. Doing our part here at CellarMonk, we have endeavored to come up with some alternate titles for some of the familiar music of the season. Have a look and let us know of any other ones you might be able to think of.

As fall rounds the corner into winter for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it is time to break out the larger coats, larger gloves and of course the larger beers. I speak of course of the high gravity beers. Whether sitting by the fire with your favorite Belgian Quad (St Bernardus Abt12 if you must know), a snifter of barleywine or pint of Imperial Stout, there is something there to keep the beer drinker warm.
Let us know what keeps beer will be keeping you warm this winter.
NOTE: Mouse (fingermove) over each item to vote. Voting is open until 12/24. Once you have voted, let us know what your favorite winter beer is in the comments!

My winter warmer is...
Belgian (Quad, Tripel, Strong Dark)
Imperial (Stout, IPA, Porter, etc)
Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy
Winter Speciality Ales
All of the above...

Hello good people of the internet. We bring to you today another of our interviews with industry professionals. This time we could not get this person to sit in the Comfy Computer Chair of Fame, so he did his interview from the park bench of fest (you'll understand).
Today we also have two firsts. First is the fact that the interview was not conducted by TheCellarMonk, but by user GrafStout (TheCellarMonks brother). Second is the fact that this is not a written interview, but one conducted in person at the interviewees own festival.
The interview is a talk with Daniel Bart, organizer of Főzdefeszt. Főzdefeszt is Hungary's largest microbrew beer festival in a country rapidly expanding it's craft beer offerings. Daniel talks to GrafStout about the evolution/revolution of the festival, micro brewed beer in Hungary (GrafStout resides in Budapest) and some of his festival favorites.
Note: This is GrafStouts first in person inteview, so be gentle. Also, there is some colorful language so if played at work one might turn their sound down as to not offend.
We hope you find the interview mildly interesting. Please let us know what you would like to see, or any comments about the video itself.
