I’ve written recently about further efforts by neo-prohibitionist groups to take Santa Claus away from his heritage and out of the hands of adults entirely. As the patron saint of brewers, this effort is naturally misguided, but then so is virtually everything that these chuckleheads undertake. I came across this website from Japan today that collects a number of holiday beer labels from around the world, many of which feature Santa Claus prominently, and several of which I’d not seen before. This nicely illustrates how little issue the rest of the civilized world has with Santa Claus being associated with beer. Below is a sample of the labels.
This one’s from the Ukraine.
And this one’s from Poland.
The X-mas Gueuze is from Belgium.
And this last one’s also Polish.
Check out the rest of them.
