In addition to beer, the Holiday Ale Festival is a connoisseur in the fine art of hand-drawn vintage pinup girls. They are typically glamorous or fashionable in style, and are always done in good taste. Betty Grable has nothing on our beautiful ladies. Wouldn't you agree?
In 2009, the Holiday Ale Festival began a new tradition of featuring a vintage pin-up girl as the annual representative of the festival. In 2009, Holly brought us holiday cheer, and in 2010, we fell head over heels for Eve. When 2011 arrived, we gained a touch of elegance with Noelle, and in 2012, Sugar & Spice combined for a wonderful winter warmer. In 2013 Angel descended upon us with her love of holiday blends, while Carol had us singing all festival long in 2014. This year, the cheerful and playful Cookie warms our heart.
This year's pin-up inspired girl is Cookie, who reminds us that you cannot live by bread alone. While Stouts and Porters tend to be her favorites, she is always looking for variations on saisons or sours to try. While the season may be a little on the cold and rainy side, the heated tents at the fest always make for a great atmosphere for tasting beer and catching up with friends.
After a day at the Holiday Ale Festival, Cookie always likes to unwind with a glass of her favorite beer by the fire.
You can get one of her official posters at the festival or if you are more of a digital collector, or want to send them to friends, she has a poster available for download in Adobe Acrobat™ format. Just click the link below.
For those of you that may have missed the festival the past three years, or were simply enjoying the beers too much to notice these lovely ladies, we have the complete collection of the unique micro-posters for download below. These posters are different from the collectible posters available for purchase at the festival.
For 2014, we find ourselves getting very caught up singing "carols" while enjoying some great winter beers as a cold chill rolls in.2014 Micro-Poster
For 2013, our very own Angel has descended upon us. Angel is a big fan of Winter Warmers, and finds unique Holiday Blends quite heavenly.2013 Micro-Poster
No, they aren't twins, but these two vixens came together in 2012 for a love of fine craft beer. Sugar & Spice... and everything nice. Cheers.2012 Micro-Poster
Know what's tall, blonde and looks great in a slinky red dress? Noelle. As our 2011 Vintage Pinup Girl, she brings us a touch of elegance this year.2011 Micro-Poster
She may be innocent looking, but Eve has a little naughty streak in her at this time of year. For 2010, she was our first brunette Vintage Pinup Girl.2010 Micro-Poster
Oh, Holly. We thank you for being our innaugural Vintage Pinup Girl in 2009. You helped to start a tradition expected to last as long as the festival.2009 Micro-Poster
