Poor ol’ Santa.  After a few frosty pints and a few wrong turns (yeah, blame the beer), Santa found himself lost over open waters and in dire need of a pit stop (yeah, blame the beer again).  Look, when ya gotta go (and relieving yourself over the side of a flying sleigh is bad karma), landing on the deck of a pirate ship is as good of a place as any—except that the scurvy pirates are an untrustworthy lot, and they’ve made Santa walk the plank.  But don’t feel bad for Santa, because our big man with the red nose has a few tricks up his sleeve, and one of those tricks is a generous supply of this delicious, spiced rum holiday ale.  That’s right, he’s going to butter up those pirates with a slew of frothy tankards of this amazing amber brew, which starts big and malty and unravels toasty caramel notes with—what’s that?  Spiced rum flavors?  Yes!  And what better way to a pirate’s heart than spiced rum!  So no need to worry—Santa will be fine, and soon he’ll be clanking tankards with that scurvy lot before sleeping it off and letting Rudolph do the driving!
