Twas the night before Thanksgiving, when all through Martin House
Not a cellarman was stirring, not even a mouse;
The cans of True Love were stacked by the walls with care,
In hopes that thirsty beer lovers soon would be there.
Martin House Brewing Company co-founder and head brewer Cody Martin said his family has hosted Thanksgiving for the past four years.
“I’m the oldest of four siblings, and my parents host Christmas and leave Thanksgiving up to the kids,” he said. “I will cook the main dish. This year, it’ll be a bone-in Wagyu rib roast. My dad is Greek, so my parents will usually bring some Greek food like pastitsio, dolmas, and baklava. All the other siblings cook up awesome traditional sides and desserts, and we spend the day together eating, watching the cowboys, and drinking Martin House beer. It’s convenient that Sugar & Spice just came out because we’ll definitely be having some of those with desert. I’m most thankful this year for a successful and healthy year for all my family and for the awesome employees we’ve got here at Martin House.”
The folks in Granbury were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Blood and Honey danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long post-daydrinking nap,
