A holiday all about drinking with friends and family—yes, please! Drinksgiving is November 24, and it’s the official day to reconnect with loved ones over a drink or two. In light of the season, we’re bringing you five Birmingham spots with incredible holiday specials, so you can celebrate the day with the best cocktails and brews around.

Queen’s Park is a must-visit bar during the holidays. Walk into a magical Christmas wonderland as the bar transforms into Miracle on 24th Street from November 22-December 30. Along with the decor, you’ll find a special drink menu full of festive flavors like spiked hot chocolate and eggnog.

Besides the delicious cocktails, I’d come to Queen’s Park just for the Christmas mugs. Spot a dino wearing a Santa hat and the feet of the big man himself.

2. Trim Tab Brewing
