The Black Squirrel at 2427 18th St. NW is scheduled to hold its seventh annual Twelve (Or More) Beers of Christmas beginning at 5 p.m. Friday, owner Amy Bowman said. The festivities are slated to continue into Saturday night.

“On the ninth day of December, your true love sent to you: five Christmas Ales, four winter warmers, nine ladies dancing, and one Black Squirrel,” she said in an email. “It is that time of year again — time to shout to the skies and have a glass, or three, of holiday cheer at The Black Squirrel.”
