Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Beer, Wine, and Spirits
Holiday stress can drive even the most temperate soul to drink, which is why alcohol is usually a safe gift. Of course, our pals in the booze industry make it difficult to select the proper potable by rolling out a mind-boggling number of festive products around this time every year. We bet you and yours will gleefully guzzle down the seasonal beers, whiskeys, wines, vodkas, rums, and tequilas we've helpfully singled out below.

Brooklyn Winery Old Vine Zinfandel 2010
Who knew? Williamsburg—with more earnest locavores, custom bicycles, and adult kickball squads per capita than any other neighborhood on the eastern seaboard—also hosts wineries.
