Randy Strange, Crane Brewing's head brewer, and KC Bier Co. beer scientist and brewer Elizabeth Belden say beer makes for a great holiday beverage.

When you think of holiday beverages, you probably imagine eggnog and spiced cider before you think of beer. Today, we hear from brewers and brew-enthusiasts from Bier StationKC Bier Co., and Crane Brewing who think that's a shame. Find out what seasonal concoctions they're cooking up, how they critique a beer and when "pastry stouts" take flavoring too far.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
