This is it, tonight at midnight wherever you might be NaNoWriMo is coming to an end. There are just a few more fraught hours of writing to reach 50,000 words.

Unless you’re me, I finished and validated my total yesterday afternoon, I don’t want to brag, actually, I do want to brag, I won.

Completing any project but particularly a challenging one always leaves you with a feeling of immense accomplishment.

So here we are with the final Authors and Beers pairing for the month, which also feels like a great way to transition into December and the glorious Christmas beers that come with it.

“It’s fruitcake weather!”

-Truman Capote, A Christmas Memory


The Beer:

Dry Dock Brewing Company – Cranberry Tart

Description (Per Dry Dock’s Website) – “Bubbly, slightly tart, and exceedingly delicious, this gorgeous ruby treat boasts a clean, bright cranberry flavor from the use of high-quality cranberry puree and drinks like a sparkling cranberry Rose.”

ABV: 5.2%

Their Match:

Now I know what you’re thinking, Truman Capote was a classy cocktail drinker and his drink of choice was a screwdriver, no beer. But stay with me, if he could write In Cold Blood and A Christmas Memory then he was clearly a man of many tastes. Also he wasn’t lucky enough to be around for the craft beer revolution we are currently experiencing.

He had a soft spot for Christmas (given his Christmas novel) and leaned towards frutitier cocktails, so this beer works in all ways (especially given the description above)
