Christmas Beer Keg Tree
About the Christmas Beer Keg Tree
Who needs a pine, spruce, or fir Christmas tree!? As they say “Beauty is in the eyes of the “beer holder”. To those who enjoy the sudsy ale, a Christmas Beer Keg tree is truly something to behold. While you may wet your whistle, this Christmas tree never needs watering.
The Genesee Brewing Company in Rochester, NY boasts a lighted, color-changing Beer Keg Christmas tree. The lights are synchronized to a variety of Christmas songs. An annual lighting ceremony attracts thousands of people, regardless of the weather, which is almost guaranteed to be cold and snowy. It stands outside the Genesee Brew House.
The Beer Keg Christmas tree is 27 feet high, has 12 layers, and is made of 520 empty half kegs.
Even in the daylight (see picture above), the Genesee Brewing Company beer keg tree stands tall and impressive.
Their sister brewery, Pyramid Brewery in Seattle, Washington has also started the tradition. Their lighted Beer Keg Christmas tree stands 20 feet tall.
