Local Brewing Unveils Winter Sweater Imperial Porter at Ugly Sweater Party

Snuggle into your most heinous holiday sweater on Thursday and head over to Local Brewing for the second annual release of their Winter Sweater Imperial Porter. This year's batch includes 50 pounds of graham crackers, chocolate malt, Madagascar vanilla beans, and lots of love. Ugly Sweater Party guests can also taste a special barrel-aged version of last year's Winter Sweater seasonal brew, which has been aging for more than year in a Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrel from neighboring Bluxome Street Winery. RSVP online for the party, which starts 6:30pm. // 69 Bluxome St. (SoMa), localbrewingco.com


Retire to The Den at Wesburger N' More

If you like drinking in cozy quarters, we recommend a visit to Wesburger N' More's new punch room, appropriately dubbed The Den. The wee watering hole opens this Friday and accommodates only 15 people, standing. Delightfully garish, the lo-fi booze bar is decked out in faux-jungle treasures and quirky western art. Punch options include the Bad Apple (dry vermouth, apple cider, Topo Chico) and the Ginger Spice (amaro, pineapple, ginger beer and allspice). They're low-alcohol, so you can have both. // 2240A Mission St (Mission), wesburgernmore.com

See Santa in Tomales Bay

Santa's making his sixth annual water sleigh visit to Nick's Cove in Tomales Bay this Sunday, December 4th from 3pm to 5pm. Take the whole family (including Fido) to the festive boat shack on the water for complimentary photos with Santa, hot chocolate, cookies, and, of course, artisan Eggnog. It's made with Germain Robin brandy from Ukiah, Blackwell spiced rum, eggs from the onsite farm, star anise, raw sugar and a dusting of nutmeg. Proceeds from the eggnog will be donated to Toys for Tots, so the more you drink, the better. // 23240 California One (Marshall), nickscove.com
