On Thursday, Redhook Brewery will host their Winterhook Release Party, celebrating their seasonal winter-warmer-style beer. Redhook Brewery Facebook

Tuesday, December 5 is the 84th anniversary of the ratification of the Twenty-First Amendment, which repealed the prohibition of alcohol. To celebrate this occasion (otherwise known as Repeal Day), we've compiled the following list of special holiday drinks and events happening all December long so you can exercise your right to booze and let your cup of cheer runneth over. From special winter beer releases at the Pine Box and Redhook, to swanky speakeasy-style Repeal Day shindigs at Dead Line and Tavern Law, there's no shortage of ways to imbibe.

Naked City Tree Lighting
The brewery will illuminate its 20-foot tree with 10,000 lights, release a special cask of its Bing spiced cherry ale (which blends Naked City's The Knowledge beer with Bing and Tart Montmorency cherries and cinnamon), and offer photos with "Brew Santa" to kick off the holidays.

The multi-generational panel of guest speakers includes Dick Cantwell, brewer and co-founder of Elysian Brewing Co.; Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, founders of Pike Brewing Co.; Annie Johnson, Master Brewer-in-Residence at PicoBrew; and Dave Green, president and CEO of Skagit Valley Malting.

Colin Lenfesty and Mike Murphy, the resident metalheads of Holy Mountain Brewing, named their Interbay brewery in tribute to the majesty of Mount Rainier and the album by stoner-rock heavyweights Sleep in equal measure.

Each of the six courses will be matched with a rare brew from Holy Mountain, and the evening will no doubt be soundtracked by some fittingly epic tunes.

Miracle on 2nd Pop-Up
In 2014, Greg Boehm of New York bar Boilermaker temporarily transformed the space for his bar Mace into a kitschy Christmas wonderland replete with gewgaws and tchotchkes galore. This year, the pop-up has expanded to bars in 50 cities worldwide and will be taking up residence in Belltown’s Rob Roy. The specialty cocktails are no ordinary cups of cheer: Beverages are housed in tacky-tastic vessels (a drinking mug resembling Santa’s mug, for example), bedecked with fanciful garnishes like peppers and dried pineapple, and christened with irreverent, pop-culture-referencing names like the “Bad Santa,” the “Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r,” and the “You’ll Shoot Your Rye Out.”
